Rangers, Cowboys Teaming Up For Charity



    Several Dallas Cowboys will be slugging baseballs next week for the Salvation Army at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

    Reliant Energy is hosting the event on May 8 at Rangers Ballpark when several Cowboys will participate in a home-run derby.

    Each player will earn $1,000 for the Salvation Army with every home run they hit and will get 10 chances with a homer earning an extra swing. The final pitch, much like in the All-Star Game home-run derby is worth more as the players will earn $2,000 for the charity.

    This is the second year Reliant has hosted this event with proceeds going to a local charity as the event raised $40,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

    Players scheduled to participate include Jason Witten, Sean Lee, Doug Free, Jason Hatcher, Dez Bryant, Brandon Carr, Bruce Carter, DeMarco Murray, Miles Austin and head coach Jason Garrett. The pitches will be thrown by former Ranger Kevin Mench.
