The Cowboys will trade touchdowns for home runs in a charity competition benefiting The Salvation Army. The Reliant-sponsored event will pay $1,000 for each home run hit.
Jason Garrett, Jason Witten, Miles Austin, DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant, Brandon Carr, Bruce Carter, Sean Lee, Jason Hatcher and Doug Free will take pitches from ex Ranger Kevin Mench. Each gets 10 swings each, with a home run earning an extra turn. The last pitch offers the chance to send $2,000 sliding into home for the Youth Education Town of The Salvation Army in Arlington.
The event raised $40,000 for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization last year.
The competition will take place at 4 p.m. May 8 at The Ballpark at Arlington.
