Bills RB LeSean McCoy to Host Softball Game

LeSean McCoy will be hosting his 3rd Annual Charity Softball Game. All proceeds will go to Shades of Greatness, which raises funds and awareness for ALS.

LeSean McCoy is a “home run threat” on the football field. On June 13, the Buffalo Bills running back is going to a home run threat on the baseball diamond as well when the running back hosts his 3rd Annual Charity Softball Game at Frontier Field in Rochester, New York. Since 2010, McCoy has hosted two other softball games in Pennsylvania and this year he’ll bring the game to Western New York.

Gates open at 5 p.m. and a homerun derby will take place at 6 p.m. The softball game itself will start at 7 p.m. All proceeds from the event will go to Shades of Greatness, Inc., the LeSean McCoy Foundation.
