After some pretty heavy rain pushed back the start of the Coach Cal Celebrity Softball Classic, the skies cleared and opened up for a fun night for a great cause. Team Karl Towns, including Matt Jones, beat Team John Calipari, including Ryan Lemond, by the score of 18-12.
The game was an awesome event to get some former Cats from several sports together with celebrities from all over the country to raise money for an extremely deserving cause.
The Kentucky Men’s Basketball social media accounts made sure everyone remembered what this night was all about.
Tonight is all for charity! Tickets go to the relief fund, but the Cal Foundation has raised for others. pic.twitter.com/csnAA5MSY4

I really don’t think I ever feel more pride in being both a UK fan and a UK alum than when events like this take place. Coach Cal and company, bravo.
Added bonus to tonight’s game, it gave Matt the chance to get some solid face-time with ESPN reporter Kaylee Hartung. Good for you Matt! Thanks for capturing the romance in the air Ryan!
