The Inaugural J.J. Watt Charity Classic

1 of 27
On a pleasant and cloudy Saturday afternoon at Sugar Land’s Constellation Field, Houston Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watt and his teammates participated in the inaugural J.J. Watt Charity Classic softball game in front of a capacity, sold-out crowd. The teams were naturally divided between the Texans’ Offense, who wore red and were lead by quarterback Matt Schaub, and the Texans’ Defense, wearing white and lead by both Coach Bun B and J.J. Watt. The festivities began with a home-run derby, which was ultimately won by Matt Schaub. The game itself was mostly controlled by Team Offense, but a late rally by Team Defense and a walk-off homer by Texan’s safety Shiloh Keo sealed a win for J.J.’s squad with the final score of 19-18. The event raised over $300,000 to fund middle school athletic programs and after-school activities both in Watt’s home state of Wisconsin as well as here in Texas. PHOTOS BY MARCO TORRES
