Jordy Nelson to return to Wisconsin for Donald Driver Charity Softball Game

Jordy Nelson has been the face of the annual charity softball event for four years.

GRAND CHUTE – Jordy Nelson is coming back to Wisconsin – without a helmet and shoulder pads.

Nelson instead will sport a bat and glove this summer to play in the Donald Driver Charity Softball Game, which celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Packers’ Super Bowl XLV Championship, according to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.  

This year’s game will feature Packers legends who brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Titletown in 2011.

Nelson took over hosting duties of the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game from Driver for the 2013 contest and continued to host the game through 2017. It will be the first time Nelson and Driver are on the same softball field since 2012.

Anyone else feeling nostalgic?

“I am looking forward to returning to Appleton to play softball, connect with fans and to enjoy catching up with my teammates from the 2010 Packers Super Bowl Team,” Nelson said in a press release.

More Packers champs who plan to play in the game will be announced in the coming months. 

The game is at 1:05 p.m. July 26 at Fox Cities Stadium. Tickets are $53 for a front-row box seat, $43 for a standard box seat, $25 for a reserved bleacher seat and $12 for a general admission grass seat.

Tickets can be purchased at timberrattlers.com, in person at the Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium Box Office or by calling 920-733-4152.
