Dirk’s annual game benefits Heroes

Dirk Nowitzki’s 2018 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game is on Friday, June 8, at 7 p.m. at the Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco (7300 RoughRiders Trail). Come out early for family-fun festivities and a Heroes Special Olympics All-Star Softball Game plus a post game fireworks finale.

For the 17th year, two baseball teams made up of celebrity players will slug it out for seven innings of hard-charging, umpires-umping, trash-talking, base-stealing, home run-hitting baseball. Proceeds will benefit the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation. For more information, go to      dnfoundation.org. — Taylor McDonnell
