Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson is bringing a benefit celebrity softball game to Day Air Ballpark on June 14.

The Logan Wilson Celebrity Softball Game will feature other Bengals, including head coach Zac Taylor, captain Sam Hubbard and Jake Browning, Todd Hunt, Joe Bachie and Mike Hilton. More players will be announced closer to the event date.

The game, sponsored by Kettering Health, will raise money for the The Brooks Joshua Anderson Foundation.
