Win 2 Tickets to Rocketman Celebrity Slam Softball Game from The Blonde Side

It’s no secret Roger Clemens has had a huge impact on the city of Houston and all of baseball. The seven-time Cy Young Winner is an athlete I’ve long admired and had the pleasure of meeting a handful of times, but his love for giving back is what makes him particularly awesome. (Remember Jingle Balls where he donated A TON of silent auction items for Ronald McDonald House?!)

Here’s your chance to win TWO Tickets to the Rocketman Celebrity Slam Softball Tournament held on July 15th (6:30p) at Minute Maid Park. The Tuesday night event will benefit the Roger Clemens Foundation.

More about the Roger Clemens Foundation (via their website):

The Roger Clemens Foundation is an entity dedicated to helping children. It was established in 1992 by Roger and Debbie Clemens in order to ensure that funds raised by the Foundation through golf tournaments, silent auctions and other events, would be properly distributed to the charities and organizations that they have committed to support.

The Foundation exists for the purpose of carrying on and supporting educational, charitable, literary, scientific and religious activities for children, with a special emphasis on underprivileged and at-risk children, and children with special needs.

    I would love to win these tickets for my husband, Lance. What an awesome anniversary gift this would be! He works so hard for our family. (Working 6-7 days a week, 12+ hours a day.) he would defiantly take a vacation day to go see one of his favorite players, who formerly played for our favorite team, the Astros! He’s always wanted to go to Minute Maid Park, but unfortunately has never had the opretunity. This would be a great time for him to just relax and enjoy himself, plus giving us the opretunity to spend so much needed quality time together. Thanks for your time, and your consideration!

    I’d love to win these tickets and take my 4 year old son. He is starting to understand the game of baseball and right now I’m teaching him the principles of the game. Teaching him about the old time greats and it would be fantastic for him to get a chance to see some of those great players, even if they are on a softball field.
