Later today, by my count, approximately all of the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Cowboys, some former Mavericks and Cowboys, at least one Dallas Star, an actor from the show "Dallas," and a lot of other sports glitterati will be hanging out at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco for Dirk Nowitzki's 2014 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game.
The proceeds will benefit the children's charities of the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation.
Mavs Moneyball's own Tim Cato was on the scene as the guys took batting practice and talked with the media a little yesterday. I've got your scouting report below, and Tim and I will be on the scene later this evening as the "Blue Sox" take on the "White Sox" in INTENSE BASEBALL ACTION.
