How All-American is the game of poker? So much so that when the Major League Baseball Players Trust decided they wanted to raise money for others in need – they turned to poker over their own “America’s Pastime.”
Tonight at the MGM Grand over 35 current and former major leaguers are taking a seat at the felt in a charity poker tournament hoping to raise money for those in need.
Some of the biggest names in the game of baseball will be testing their poker skills including MLB Hall of Famers Ozzie Smith, Dave Winfield and Eddie Murray. Retired pros like Barry Bonds, Adam Dunn, Kenny Lofton and Reggie Sanders join current superstars Shane Victorino, Drew Stubbs, James Loney, Josh Johnson and many more plan on going all-in all night.
Plus, if you bust a Major Leaguer he’ll give you the shirt right off his back. Of course, every ball player will be wearing their own jersey so the poker playing public can walk away with not just a good memory and the feeling of helping others but a pretty sick souvenir to wear or mount on the wall.
So swing away tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas at 7pm. No reservations needed, you can just show up, buy-in and take it down.
