VIDEO: WWE Superstars Charity Softball Highlights

With WrestleMania 29 around the corner, it's pretty safe to say that I'll be consuming more wrestling video this week than I have in the past year.  Add to that it is also the first week of the baseball season and we've got a while different problem.

Solution!  A marriage of the two.

It's no secret, that the connection between baseball and professional wrestling is a storied one (I'll let you make the steroids jokes), so imagine the excitement of seeing a host of WWE Superstars taking the field in Chicago to play 16-inch softball.

Some highlights:

  • Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz (naturally)
  • A totally 90s, grunged-out Shawn Michaels flipping the double bird
  • 6'10 Kevin Nash, "Big Daddy Cool" himself, rocking the ultimate in uncool…sandals with socks and two, count 'em TWO fanny packs  
  • And, of course, former minor leaguer Randy "The Macho Man" Savage going yard.  Ooooh yeah!

Below is the minute long, WWE cut down of the 1994 charity event.  Click HERE to see a longer, spectacular video full of  more hair and ill-fitting shorts than you can shake a Slim Jim at.

About Shawn Anderson

Shawn Anderson is that guy who, instead of sitting there talking about the game going on around him, is talking wise about the history of baseball. He believes baseball figures such as Tommy John, Harold Baines, Ron Guidry and Billy Martin deserve their own plaque somewhere if not in Cooperstown. You can follow him on Twitter at @HOVG.
