Led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, the band wanted to create a signature event with friends from the worlds of music and sports combining America’s pastime and music to benefit Austin’s youth. In eight years, the Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam has raised over $300,000 for area youth leagues (South Austin Little League, Balcones Little League, Montopolis Little League, Del Valley Little League, The Miracle League at Town & Country, The Miracle League of San Antonio, Greater East Austin Youth Association and RBI Austin) including a $150,000 renovation of Mabson Field in East Austin.
This year, proceeds from the event will benefit The SIMS Foundation and Reckless Kelly’s ongoing efforts to support youth sports programs in Central Texas.
The Jam's draft was held at Threadgills last week and the team's line-ups can be seen above. Who do you think has the goods to win it, Willy Braun's One Hit Wonders or brother Cody's Sultans of Swing?
