and FIREWORKS FINALE presented by Baylor Medical Center at Frisco



His strike zone may be greater than most but that doesn’t deter Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki from taking to the baseball diamond every summer. On Saturday, June 27, he’ll once again headline Dirk Nowitzki’s 2015 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game presented by Baylor Medical Center at Frisco at the Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco (7300 RoughRiders Trl).
The big game begins at 6:30 p.m. Game goers are encouraged to come out early for family-fun festivities and
a Heroes Special Olympics All-Star Softball Game plus post-game fireworks to round out the evening.

For the 14th year, two baseball teams, each made up of celebrity players and amateurs, will slug it out for nine innings of
hard-charging, umpires-umpping, trash-talking, base-stealing, home run-hitting, authentic baseball!

From Mavericks to Cowboys and more, famous faces will include Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks MVP and 2011 NBA champion), Charles Barkley (NBA Hall of Famer and TV analyst), Dez Bryant (Dallas Cowboys wide receiver),
Cole Beasley (Dallas Cowboys wide receiver), Terrance Williams (Dallas Cowboys wide receiver),
J. J. Wilcox (Dallas Cowboys safety), Jack Crawford (Dallas Cowboys defensive end),
Tyron Smith (Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle), Brian Cardinal (former Dallas Mavericks forward and 2011 NBA champion), Monta Ellis (Dallas Mavericks guard), Devin Harris (Dallas Mavericks guard),
Charlie Villanueva (Dallas Mavericks forward),
Ryan Cabrera (pop/rock singer and Dallas native) plus more names to come.
Chandler Parsons (Dallas Mavericks forward/strong forward) will be a team manager.

Who is Swish41?

Dirk Nowitzki was born in Würzburg, Germany on June 19, 1978. He began his professional career with Würzburg DJK in the Bundesliga and then impressed NBA coaches and scouts with 33 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 steals at the 1998 Nike Hoop Summit. Consequently, Dirk became the ninth pick in the NBA draft, with an arranged trade that sent him from Milwaukee to Dallas.

Dirk owns multiple Mavericks franchise records, including career points, three-point field goals, free throws, rebounds, and points in a single game. He has led the Mavericks to seasons of 50 or more wins and annual trips to the playoffs since 2001. In the 2005-2006 season Nowitzki played a major role in sweeping the Grizzlies, defeating San Antonio and the Suns, and winning the Western Conference Championship for Dallas’ first trip to the NBA Finals.
