You've seen him shoot hoops, now watch him slug it out. Dirk Nowitzki will go from point guard to pinch hitter for two very good causes—the Heroes Organization, which helps kids participate in team sports, and his own foundation, which provides educational and developmental grants for children all over the world. The annual baseball game-slash-fundraiser features two teams, made up of notable athletes and celebrities such as Terrell Owens, Mark Cuban, Nick Van Exel, Dez Bryant, Jason Terry, and Goose Gossage, duking it out for bragging rights and charity. The afternoon kicks off with the Special Olympics All-Star Softball game, followed by the Celebrity Home Run Derby. The main event (where you get to see all those famous faces face off) starts at 6 p.m., but stick around for post-game fireworks.
