Sacramento Kings forward Reggie Evans hosted a charity softball game that benefited the Reggie Evans Foundation on July 19. The game kicked off at 7 p.m. at Blue Wahoos Stadium, and fans were able to purchase VIP tickets for $35 that included a meet and greet reception at Hancock Bank Club beforehand. If people were only going to the game itself it was just a mere $8 which is a fantastic price for any sporting event, and it was an amazing opportunity for adults and kids alike. In addition to Evans, other familiar faces from the NBA such as DeMarcus Cousins, Quincy Acy, Darren Collision, and Michelle Snow participated in the game. There were also items auctioned off that featured autographed basketball shoes from many other superstars such as Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose. It was a fun filled experience for everyone who attended and a rare opportunity to see the NBA players do something off the courts.
The Pensacola native attended the Coffeyville Community College for two years before transferring to the University of Iowa. After for years of school he entered the 2002 NBA Draft and was not selected by a team, but he ended up signing with the Seattle SuperSonics as a free agent which is where he became known for his great ability to rebound. Following his time in Seattle he also played for the Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and the Sacramento Kings. Even though it is highly speculated that Evans will be staying with the Kings, he has not confirmed anything except saying that he is going to be on a team.
Evans and a few fellow NBA players participated in a charity softball game earlier this month and it was a lot of fun for basketball and softball fans alike.
