South Philadelphia's FDR Park was the scene of the Second Annual Summer Softball Challenge this past Saturday afternoon. Ladies representing six of Philadelphia's professional sports teams turned out to raise money for Phillies Charities, The Comcast-Spectacor Foundation and The Philadelphia Soul Foundation.
There were raffles, a silent auction, celebrity coaches and even a dance performance.
Let's see who was competing:
The Phillies Ballgirls. The Phillies Ballgirls are the defending Summer Softball Challenge Champions, having defeated the Sixers Dancers last year.
Formerly of the Major Indoor Soccer League, The KiXX Dance Team
The Philadelphia Soulmates. Many of the Soulmates will be traveling to New Orleans next weekend to cheer on the Soul at Arena Bowl XXII.
From the National Lacrosse League The Philadelphia Wings Angels. I think this might be the Angels first appearance on the blog.
The Philadelphia Sixers Dancers who just finished their auditions for 2008-09 this past Monday.
The Philadelphia Flyers Delta Dental Ice Team who in the finest tradition of the Broad Street Bullies arrived wearing eye black and temporary tattoos of their uniform numbers on their arms.
There was the perfect balance of camaraderie and competitiveness, and based on my observations a good time was had by all.
