INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - On Thursday night, the Colts Robert Mathis and Pacers Roy Hibbert played host to their 5th Annual Caroline Symmes Memorial Celebrity Softball Challenge.
The game featured many of the Pacers and Colts players, along with the local media members, including WISH TV's Amanda Maynard. All of the proceeds from the event went to the Indiana Children's WISH fund. Although the game was for fun, Pacers Center and team captain Roy Hibbert said he was happy helping his team from the dugout, instead of on the field.
"I am competitive, I am awful at softball, but I am a really good manager....you know, just putting people in the right spots. I've lost two years in a row, so I am surprised I still have this job, you know." said Hibbert.
Although both teams took a competitive approach, team captain and Colts Linebacker Robert Mathis said the game wasn't just about winning.
"Most importantly it's for a good cause and so I can't expect anything more than just to have the people come out for a good cause and to have fun." Mathis said.
With a great crowd on hand, fans witnessed Robert Mathis's team pick up the victory.
