PAWTUCKET â€“ It was a big night at McCoy Stadium Sunday night with lots of stars, both from sports and entertainment, shining bright, and all for singer and Providence native Jeffrey Osborneâ€™s charitable foundation and the Pawtucket Red Sox Charitable Trust.
The idea was to bring in the big names like Magic Johnson, Osborneâ€™s co-coach; Magicâ€™s Los Angeles Lakers teammates, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy; and singer Smokey Robinson, and have them play a softball game against New England favorites such as New England Patriots Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Grogan, his teamâ€™s coach, and the likes of Olympic skater Michelle Kwan, Providence College basketball coach Ed Cooley, and some of his sports contacts, including former Patriots defensive back Ty Law and ex-Red Sox pitcher Oil Can Boyd, to name a few. Cedric the Entertainer was emcee for the event.
