WGR 550 –  There is a softball game being played at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 2 at Sahlen Field in Downtown Buffalo that every Buffalo Bills fan will want to attend.

Bills safety Micah Hyde is putting together a super lineup of Bills teammates, legends and celebrities to particiapte in the inaugural Micah Hyde Charity Softball Game, benefiting his IMagINe for Youth Foundation. Tickets are on sale now for this one of a kind family day.

Here's a look at the lineup that Hyde has put togther so far to do battle on the diamond at Sahlen Field:

  • Josh Allen
  • Patrick DiMarco
  • Wyatt Teller
  • Jerry Hughes
  • Lorenzo Alexander
  • Jordan Poyer
  • Tre'Davious White
  • Matt Barkley
  • Harrison Phillips

There will be more to come, plus WGR's own Sal Capaccio will be there as the emcee and play caller.

"Growing up, I was fortunate to be heavily involved in sports. Though I was given the opportunity to do so, I witnessed the obstacles my family had to face in order to provide opportunities, not only for myself, but my siblings as well," Hyde said. "With all of these activities came costs that were not easy for my mother to attain. I can remember being responsible for insurance and participation fees, travel costs along with purchasing the equipment needed. If it were not for my mom doing all that she could do, along with a support system that we were able to fall back on, I would not be where I am today. I know there are many kids that face similar circumstances, but unfortunately, they do not have a support system to depend on. That’s why the IMagINe for Youth Foundation is here to give children the support they need in order to participate.

"Looking back, being involved in athletics was more than Xs and Os. I learned to take the good with the bad, the bad with the good, and playing with countless personalities taught me how to coexist and be a team player. These are fundamentals that stuck with me. I believe sports is a gateway to learning how to be successful in the real world. I strongly believe that every child deserves the same opportunity to learn and experience those successes.

"I have always wanted to give back. Now is the time to do so. Please join me in making a difference. I’M IN. Are you?”
