Lardarius Webb gets by with a little help from his friends. The Baltimore Ravens cornerback recently hosted his own charity softball game in Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, a post formerly held by longtime Ravens guard Ben Grubbs. However since Grubbs went to New Orleans this offseason to play for the Saints and take Carl Nicks' spot blocking for Drew Brees, someone had to take over. Webb drew the straw.
Webb was excited, then, when other NFL stars like Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs and Earl Thomas of the Seattle Seahawks came out to support his game and lend their presence to help bring in money.
"It was nice," he said. "We wouldn't have this turnout if it wasn't for these fans and my teammates. They came out and had a great time, and when you have teammates like I do, things are going to turn out this way. We're just going to continue to give back to the fans and to the community. They're the best."
Other players who joined included several Ravens like Ray Rice, Joe Flacco and Torrey Smith.
