Cowboys hitting home runs for charity

Update: The Cowboys are done batting…


The Cowboys players got some work in this morning and will spend this evening trying to hit home runs for Charity, read here.

Later today several Dallas Cowboys players, coach Jason Garrett and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman will head to The Ballpark in Arlington for a home run derby to raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.

Reliant will donate $500 for each home run hit during the event as well as more money for players who hit other bulls-eye targets.

Garrett isn’t counting on the long ball.

“Took batting practice the other night at Coppell High School and I counted I swung at 42 pitches and I hit 37 ground balls to third base, so we’ll see,” Garrett said.

But Aikman might be another story.

“Then to top it off Aikman is involved in this thing and I got a phone call at 6 o’clock last night that he hit three balls into the tennis courts at Coppell High School,” said Garrett, Aikman’s long-time backup. “Story of my life.”

Aikman keeps himself in incredible shape. Should be fun to see who hits the most home runs out of the veterans who are participating tonight.

    I’m just hoping none of them get hurt the way things have been going!

    Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, disagreeing recently with Jerry Jones and how he sees the window closing on opportunities on the field:
    “It’s not closing. I think there’s a sense of urgency every year that you play, whether it’s your first year in the league or your 22nd. You never know when all that stuff is going to happen, so you just play every year as if it’s an urgent day.”
