Packers hit diamond

 

The Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers finally got back together on the field Sunday – to play softball. Roughly three dozen Packers players gathered for wide receiver Donald Driver’s annual charity softball game at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute, Wis., about a half-hour away from Lambeau Field. It was the team’s first gathering since the “Return to Titletown” welcome home event following their 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 6. “We want to play. You can tell how much we miss each other,” Driver said before the game. “We’re throwing the ball around out there like it’s a football. If I had a crystal ball, I could tell you what’s going to happen (with the lockout). No one knows. But we will play football.” – AP
