Play Ball With the Big Boys

This is a pretty cool idea for a good cause. I bet the jerseys aren’t as cool as the old DC Bullets ones, though.

Head on over to eBay (links no longer available) to bid on the chance to play on either the DC Comics or Marvel Comics softball team in their annual game at Comic-Con International in San Diego on Thursday, July 20, 2006.

As a member of the DC Comics team, Captain Dan DiDio will assign your position and give you an official DC uniform. This is your chance to play alongside comic greats such as Jim Lee, Adam Kubert, Mark Waid, Ale Garza, Scott Williams, Ryan Benjamin, Mike Carlin, Mark Chiarello, and MORE!

As a member of the Marvel Comics team, Captain Mike Marts will assign your position and give you an official Marvel uniform. This is your chance to play alongside comic greats such as Esad Ribic, Billy Tucci, John Romita Jr., Jim Calafiore, Robert Kirkman, Mark McKenna, Tony Bedard, Greg Pak, and MORE!

The game is on Thursday, July 20 at 3 pm at Morley Field in Balboa Park, just five minutes from downtown San Diego. Rosters are always subject to change, but if YOU win, you’re there!

This is a benefit for A Commitment To Our Roots (A.C.T.O.R.) Comic Fund. A.C.T.O.R. is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. A.C.T.O.R. creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and entrée back into paying work.
