Philadelphia Eagles superstar, LeSean McCoy, is returning to Lancaster, PA and Clipper
Magazine Stadium to host the 2nd Annual LeSean McCoy Celebrity Softball Game on Saturday, June 22, 2013.

Over 7,000 fans enjoyed last year’s inaugural softball game as NFL stars including DeSean Jackson, Michael
Vick, Torrey Smith, Brian Westbrook, Hugh Douglas, Jeremy Maclin, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
displayed their athletic prowess for the avid sports fans of Central Pennsylvania. McCoy has compiled an even
more extensive invitation list of NFL players for this June’s game.

“Our first Celebrity Softball Game was fantastic,” McCoy said, “The players, fans and families, had an amazing
time. I am so proud of what we accomplished. We raised significant money for ALS and supported programs
for the disadvantaged youth of Central PA. I am inviting all my friends and teammates to come back to
Lancaster for the second annual LeSean McCoy Celebrity Softball Game on Saturday, June 22nd – AND, this
year – I plan to win the Home Run Derby!”

Gates will open at Clipper Magazine Stadium on June 22nd at 5:00 p.m. A home run derby will be held at 6:00
p.m. followed by the celebrity softball game beginning at 7:00 p.m. Other new and exciting elements are being
developed for the evening and will be announced at a future date.

“The Lancaster Barnstormers’ organization is thrilled to welcome LeSean and his NFL colleagues back to

game speaks to the heart of our goals – bringing Central Pennsylvania’s sports fans together to enjoy spectacular

“With the monies raised through the LeSean McCoy Celebrity Softball Game, the LeSean McCoy Foundation
has been able to help a number of organizations, all in support of our mission as a foundation,” said LeSean
McCoy Foundation officials.
