Third Annual Heath Evans Softball Showdown Returns to New Orleans

aaGame takes place Wednesday, May 16 at Zephyr Field.
Former New Orleans Saints fullback Heath Evans is putting on his black-and-gold jersey again – for a good cause.

Evans is hosting his annual charity softball game on Wednesday, May 16 at Zephyr Field in Metairie with more than 30 current Saints players expected to participate.

The third annual Heath Evans Softball Showdown features a fun-filled Home Run Derby at 6:30 p.m. followed by a game with the Saints Offense playing the Saints Defense.

Drew Brees, who in 2011 won the Home Run Derby for the second consecutive year, led the Offense’s 25-13 rout of the Defense last year in front of almost 10,000 spectators.

The game is open to the public. Admission is $12 and tickets are available at the Zephyr Field box office in Metairie and on TicketMaster.com.

“Last year’s softball game was a huge success thanks to the fans and the Saints players,” said Evans, who spent 10 years in the NFL and retired prior to the 2011 season and is currently an analyst for the NFL Network. “Everyone had a lot of fun and this year’s game will be even better with some surprises we have planned. It’s family-friendly for the fans and we’re raising money for a good cause, helping victims of childhood sexual abuse. This is a cause that my wife and I strongly believe in and are passionate about. I really appreciate the fans and my former teammates rallying to help us this epidemic.”

Brees wins the Home Run Derby for two consecutive years? Against all those beefy linemen? Is there anything this guy can't do? I know there's some conflict over the contract thing, but Drew continues to impress from my point of view ... and it's all for a good cause.

This is clearly on the negotiating table right now: "You and I both know that the softball team sinks or swims by Drew, Mickey! Stop jerkin' me around or you can kiss those 10 homers a year good bye!"
