Ever watch some guys pitch on TV and be shocked that they are in a major league uniform? Yea, quite often actually. Almost every fan is guilty of that split second thought where if it was them in the batters box the outcome would have been different, or the self convincing that they could hit over the mendoza line. Every fan is guilty of being critical, thats just the nature of the beast. But for those fans who are still waiting for that phone call on draft day that never comes each year, here is your chance to see where you stand amongst the best the MLB has to offer.

This September, Albert Pujols and Clayton Kershaw will be teaming up for a wiffle ball game that features two lucky fans and their guests. The game will be played at Angel Stadium benefitting the Kershaw Challenge and Pujols Family Foundation. The Kershaw Challenge works to improve the standard of living and quality of life for impoverished people in the Dominican Republic, while the Pujols Family Foundation provides awareness and meets the needs for individuals and families who live with down syndrome. So as you can see, this event will be for a great cause and help many people in need all over the globe.

The two winning fans will be selected by a raffle which you can enter by visiting and entering to win by placing as little as a $10 donation to the foundations. The prize winners get to face both Pujols & Kershaw in a game of wiffle ball, which is then followed by lunch with the players and tickets to that nights Freeway Series game in premium seats.

In the sports world it doesn’t get said often enough about the athletes who actually are positive role models and benefit the community. Kershaw and Pujols are two of the best out there and do a ton to help out those in need which is why events like these are awesome to see and be apart of. Wiffle ball, charity, food, and great seats to one of baseballs best rivalry sounds like money well spent. Not to mention the Angels are still looking for offensive help so if you take Kershaw deep who knows, maybe end up batting clean up for the Halos that night.

So hopefully everyone checks out this great cause and helps out a ton of families in need. Here are the ground rules for the event…
