Larry Fitzgerald has more football left in him (although I do feel for him a bit this season — these potential retirement questions probably aren’t going away), but first, softball. Fitz is hosting his annual charity softball game Saturday night at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale. Friday, he’s also hosting a charity golf tournament. (Click here for all the details.)
The events benefit Fitzgerald’s First Down Fund, which helps “kids and their families by funding positive activities for kids during the summer and throughout the year, supporting kids and families in crisis, and supporting health-related organizations that work with families.” (That’s straight off Fitz’s website.) The softball game has grown bigger every year and, not surprisingly with Fitz, has been a big success.
Among the players scheduled to attend: Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Archie Goodwin and P.J. Tucker of the Phoenix Suns, former Cardinals wide receivers Anquan Boldin and Andre Roberts, Bills receiver Sammy Watkins, ex-NFL wideout Terrell Owens, and current Cardinals Michael Floyd, Calais Campbell and Andre Ellington.
