Philadelphia 76ers star Evan Turner, Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson were just a few of the celebrities at a charity celebrity softball game on Saturday in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, hosted by fellow Eagle LeSean McCoy.

The game, which drew over 7,000 fans to Clipper Magazine Stadium, featured the Eagles taking on players from other teams including the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Philadelphia 76ers.

Meanwhile, McCoy, who is from Harrisburg, put on the event to raise support and awareness of ALS. The disease, which impacts the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord, led to the death of McCoy’s grandmother, MaryAnn.

One of the game’s biggest highlights came off the bat of Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who swatted three home runs in an 18-14 win for the Eagles.

The day also featured a home-run derby competition that included Vick. Of course, it was fittingly won by New York Giant Ryan Purvis.

McCoy’s first-annual get-together proved successful by raising $100,000.

In other game-related news, another player in attendance for Saturday’s festivities was Baltimore Ravens receiver Torrey Smith. The second-year receiver did not exactly enjoy a warm reception from Steelers fans on hand.

I had a nice ovation full of Boos from Steeler fans haha jeez it's a charity game #thehateisreal
