It's too bad that we need to dip into the minor league ranks to get a celebrity home run derby. An event like this deserves a big stage, one that can unite us all in the great American past time of making jokes on Twitter. In any case, the thought of Rob Gronkowski swinging a baseball bat is a fun one. Yo soy looking forward to it!
Joining the New England Patriots tight end will be Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson, Hall of Famer and former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, and non-sports notable person Nick Bakay. The Derby is all set for Monday, July 9, at Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo, NY, at 7:00 p.m. ET.
