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!
