Thousands attend Donald Driver's annual softball game

Posted:
GRAND CHUTE (WAOW) -

Thousands of people gathered in Grand Chute on Sunday morning for Donald Driver's annual charity softball game.

Current and former Packers players stepped up the to plate, all for a good cause.

Even though Driver is retired, there's not doubt that the fans still love him.

This year's charity softball game has a bit of a different feel. Instead of current players, the roster is mostly full of rookies and former Packers.

"You won't believe some of the rookies like 'oh man, it's just an honor to meet you, and I'm like well it's an honor the same to meet you," said Driver. "It's goes hand in hand. It's a little different, but at the end of the day we're all Packer players and we all love each other."

Driver says no matter who's playing the most important thing is raising money for local charities.

This was the 4th year in a row that tickets for the event sold out, and organizers say that they hope to make that an annual tradition.
