Matthew McConaughey Joins Veterans, Celebs in Red River Charity Softball Game

Academy Award winning actor and Texan Matthew McConaughey will be among dozens of actors and athletes joining veterans of America's armed services playing in a charity softball game Thursday ahead of Texas-OU weekend.

The Red River Charity Softball Game will benefit the Lone Survivor Foundation, a charity established in 2010 by former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell. Luttrell authored a best-selling novel in 2007, a "harrowing, emotionally raw account and motivational story of his survival and the deaths of his comrades-in-arms in Operation Redwing."

Luttrell and other veterans of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, will make up most of the rosters of the two teams -- one representing Texas and the other Oklahama. Each team each team will be bolstered with a few celebs and rounded out with a professional softball player. Complete rosters can be seen below.

McConaughey will join Luttrell on Team Texas, along with UT alums Vince Young, Earl Campbell, Roger Clemens and Ricky Williams. On the Oklahoma side, country singer Toby Keith will be joined by Billy Dawson and former Dallas Cowboys DB Roy Williams.

The game is Thursday, Oct. 12 at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. Proceeds benefit the Lone Survivor Foundation. Tickets are available at
