Heroes game raises money for charity

By David Collier

FRISCO, Texas -- The Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game had a couple of purposes. It brought a full list of celebrities together to have fun playing some baseball, but most importantly, it raised money for a good cause.

The proceeds gathered from Saturday's sellout at Dr Pepper Ballpark are going towards the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation.

"I did this because it's just such a great cause," Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said over the P.A. system during the game. "Dirk is a great friend, and I wanted to help him out."
