The Timber Rattlers now have team captains for the Green & Gold Charity Softball game.
In past years, Jordy Nelson hosted the charity softball game. But, Nelson was released from the Packers last month and is now with the Oakland Raiders.
Now, Clay Matthews and Davante Adams will serve as team captains for the June 2nd game. The captains will draft their squads from their Green Bay Packers teammates to compete in the game instead of the traditional offense vs. defense.
Nelson spoke out about the new changes.
“I’ve really enjoyed hosting the softball game the last four years and I’m glad to see it’s in good hands with Clay and Davante as co-captains," said Nelson.
Tickets are available through the Wisconsin Timber Ratters Ticket Office. Bleachers are $29 and general admission is $14. fans who purchased patio table seating for the game will now receive an autographed softball from Davante Adams.
Still benefiting from the proceeds will be Young Life, an organization for middle, high school and college students that pairs them with adults to focus on fun, adventure and friendship. The Timber Rattlers say additional charitable partners will also be beneficiaries of this year's game.
