continued from page 2

PLAY (SOFT)BALL! Dave Winfield hit a pair of homers, Jon Hamm of the AMC hit “Mad Men” added a two-run shot and a team representing National League clubs routed their AL counterparts 21-8 in the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game.

Matt Kinsey of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team added a three-run shot, and Hall of Famer Andre Dawson and soccer star Carlos Bocanegra also homered for the National team.

Former Royals star Mike Sweeney hit a pair of homers for the American team before an adoring sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium that remained long after the All-Star Futures Game.

Joe Carter added a three-run homer off longtime Olympic softball star Jennie Finch, while Kansas basketball coach Bill Self and actor Chord Overstreet of “Glee” fame also went deep.
