Famed New York Yankees Centerfielder and Latin Grammy nominee Bernie Williams is back with another star-studded day featuring celebrities from the worlds of sports and music, all to benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF). The day begins with a celebrity softball game on the ballfield next to The Ridgefield Playhouse with Bernie and his bandmates, along with special guests scheduled to play* – including legendary New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, former MLB second baseman, coach and manager Willie Randolph, former MLB outfielder and coach Mookie Wilson, Yankees Great Jeff Nelson, Comedian Chris Distefano, WFAN Radio and MLB Network host Keith McPherson, Legendary Baseball and TV and Radio Journalist Ed Randall, and many more to be announced! Play-by-play announcer is Mike Bennett of Mike & Kacey in the Morning on 100.7FM WHUD. Following the game will be an outdoor concert with Bernie and his musical guests also on the outdoor field. In the past, Bernie’s musical guests have included Paul Simon and Paul Shaffer, among others and celebrity softball athletes have included everyone from Darryl Strawberry and David Cone to Mickey Rivers and Tommy Lasorda – just to name a few. Don’t miss the chance to spend the day with your family on the field with some of the legends in music and baseball!
Raising awareness of pulmonary fibrosis is close to Bernie’s heart. In 2001, Bernie’s father, Bernabé, passed away from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and since 2017, he’s been committed to spreading the word about this rare disease via the Breathless campaign. The mission of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is to accelerate the development of new treatments and ultimately a cure for pulmonary fibrosis.
