Comedians in All-Star celebrity/legends softball game

Chrisrocksoftball It’s the All-Star break in baseball, and with festivities just a couple
of boroughs away from The Comic’s Comic HQ over at Yankee Stadium, we
cannot help but notice. Nor can we fail to mention that yesterday’s
All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game included four comedians:
Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, George Lopez and Chris Rock (pictured here in his Mets cap!). The game airs at 10 p.m. tonight on ESPN
following the home run derby (which for some reason does not include
legends or celebrities).
