Play ball!

A star-studded charity softball game returns to the Las Vegas Ballpark this summer on Saturday, July 24.

The Battle for Las Vegas presented by the Dollar Loan Center will feature two teams, one led by Golden Knights forward Reilly Smith and the other by former Raiders running back Marcus Allen.

“This event is a home run and I’m so excited to bring it back, especially this year,” said Smith, who hosts the event. “We can’t wait to get out there, have fun and fundraise for worthy local charities. I am grateful for this opportunity to give back and hopefully reclaim the winning title!

Knights, Raiders and other professional athletes are expected as well as celebrities and media personalities.

The match starts at 7:30 p.m., but doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a home run derby at 6:30 p.m.

Chance, Spruce the Goose and the Aviator are expected to make appearances, along with the Golden Aces and DJ Green. America’s Got Talent finalist Daniel Emmet will sing the national anthem.

Tickets for the game go on sale June 14 at noon. Las Vegas Ballpark season ticket holders and those who download the Summerlin app can purchase presale tickets on June 11 at noon. Tickets start at $ 40 and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster.com or at the Las Vegas Ballpark box office.

In 2019, the Battle of Las Vegas softball event raised over $ 136,000 for local charities. This year, the money raised will benefit the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation.
