Darius Rucker Is Ready To Play Ball!


Darius Rucker is joining artists such as Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Julianne Hough, and Jason Michael Carroll, tomorrow at Greer Stadium in Nashville for the City Of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge. Rucker recently chatted with The Tennessean about the upcoming game.

“Last year I was looking at the game and didn’t get to do it, and was looking at everyone there, I was like ‘Wow,’ ” he says. “Just sitting there with the people on the bench would have been cool. I’m always willing to help charities and am looking forward to the fun and camaraderie of it. It’s going to be fun.”

Rucker says that he’ll probably do more coaching than playing tomorrow. He’s had multiple knee surgeries and isn’t sure he can make it around the bases.

“If I hit it and make it to first base, they might have to get me a pinch runner,” he says. “I don’t like to lose at anything. I really can’t wait.”

The celebrity softball has raised more than $1.5 million for City of Hope. This year tickets are $18 or $40 for a four-ticket family pack. If you’re in town for the CMA Music Festival and would like to attend the game tomorrow, you can still purchase tickets HERE.
