Jarvis Landry holds charity softball game

News

EASTLAKE, Ohio (WJW/AP) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry hosted a celebrity softball game Saturday evening.

The charity softball game began at 5 p.m. at Lake County Captains Classic Park in Eastlake.

A crowd of 7,000 fans were in attendance to see Landry, Odell Beckham Jr., Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett and several others play an exhibition softball game.

The line-up also featured other celebrities and athletes including Bernie Kosar, Darius Garland and Ted Ginn Jr.

The event kicked off with a Home Run Derby. Mayfield hit seven bombs!

During the softball game, Landry served as a team captain, as well as Kansas City’s Travis Kelce.

Mayfield got the party started for Landry’s team. He doubled to deep right, scoring a run from second.

The host of the event, Jarvis Landry, slapped one to third and scores another run.

Garrett homered in the game as well.

Officials say OBJ’s softball game needs some work, but according to Landry, we should watch out of OBJ in 2021. Beckham struggled in the home-run hitting contest, popping up several pitched and completely missing a few, but Landry reports that his speedy teammate looked fully recovered when they worked out together this past week in Austin, Texas.

“Man, he looked amazing,” Landry told reporters. “I can’t wait for you guys to see him. I can’t wait for him to get back out there. He’s in fantastic shape and he’s ready to go. He’s only what, 6 1/2 months (beyond surgery), and he’s already doing some things that will blow your mind away.”

Landry’s team beat Kelce’s team 22-7. 

Kelce was at home in Cleveland, but also in enemy territory. He feels the Browns are “neck and neck” with the Chiefs, the two-time defending AFC champions.

Cleveland will open the 2021 season in Kansas City, where the Browns’ 2020 season ended with a playoff loss.
