As players get ready to head back to their professional hockey camps and training camps for the national hockey programs, as they prepare for the 2014 Olympics, some Boston Bruins will be headed to Lowell, Mass. to play softball.
Milan Lucic, Shawn Thornton, Johnny Boychuk, Dennis Seidenberg, Brad Marchand, David Krejci and Torey Krug are all schedule to appear and participate in Lucic’s fourth annual Celebrity Rock and Jock Softball game at LeLacheur Park on Sept. 5. Originally scheduled for Aug. 22, this year’s softball game was moved a few week later as to not conflict with Team Canada’s evaluation camp for the Sochi Olympics.
The softball event came together from Milan Lucic’s determination to give back to the community. Working with Align Credit Union (formerly NMTW), Boston Bruins teammates, local media personalities and fans who all have the same ambition, Rock & Jock is on its way to becoming an event that people look forward to each year.
Joining the seven current Bruins on the “Jocks” roster will be former Boston Bruin and Hockey Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, US Olympic Hockey gold medalist Colleen Coyne and New England Revolution soccer player Kelyn Rowe.
The “Rocks” will featured Comedians Lenny Clarke and Dave Russo, Hot 96.9 FM’s Melissa, JAM’N 94.5 FM’s Krazy Kulo and Ramiro, CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty, Family Guy Executive Producer Danny Smith, WZLX 100.7 Classic Rock’s Pete McKenzie, 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Rich Shertenlieb and Fred Toucher from Toucher and Rich, Country 102.5 FM’s John Willis, Country 102.5 FM’s Lori Grande, Channel 7 Sports’ Joe Amorosino and Mix 104.1 FM’s Karson.
