LAS VEGAS (April 29, 2019) – Batter up! The first-ever Battle for Vegas Charity Softball Game hosted by Reilly Smith will take place at the new Las Vegas Ballpark® in Downtown Summerlin Saturday, June 15 at 7 p.m.
In a city known for over-the-top, one-of-a-kind events, fans will get the chance to watch their favorite stars in action as the teams “battle” it out for Las Vegas’ ultimate bragging rights, all for a good cause. The softball showdown will feature two all-star teams of professional athletes, celebrities and media personalities, led by Reilly Smith of the Vegas Golden Knights and his teammates and Pro Football Hall of Famer Marcus Allen and friends from the Raiders.

Full team rosters will be announced in the coming weeks and promise to feature some of Las Vegas’ favorite stars of the hockey rink, gridiron and stage. The Battle For Vegas Charity Softball Game will benefit local charities, including the Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF), the nonprofit foundation of Imagine Dragons, which is dedicated to providing financial support to children and their families battling a pediatric cancer diagnosis.

About The Tyler Robinson Foundation
The Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF) helps strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by providing grants specifically to offset out-of-pocket life expenses. TRF is the nonprofit organization of the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling band Imagine Dragons. TRF meets a critical need in communities across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Each year, one in 285 children are diagnosed with cancer. While many pediatric cancer organizations focus on growing awareness and support for families with the physical and emotional toll of a diagnosis, the huge financial hardship cancer treatment places on families is rarely discussed. More than 85-percent of every dollar TRF raises goes right to families in need. For more information visit TRF.org.
