Hey, sports fans — don’t miss the annual WFAN Celebrity Softball Game this Thursday evening at 6pm at New Rochelle’s City Park on Fifth Avenue.

New Ro native Craig Carton and his WFAN co-host Boomer Esiason will lead an all-star team including Dwight Gooden, Al Dukes, Wally Szcherbiak, John Franco and more.  The New Rochelle team won’t pack quite that much firepower, but we will have at least one ringer in the line-up (let’s just say he’ll come in handy if relief pitching is needed in the late innings.)

This event is always a ton of fun, and it’s especially exciting for kids, who will have a chance to meet some star athletes.

Craig Carton and I went through the New Rochelle public schools together, all the way back to kindergarten, and I really appreciate his staying connected to our city.
