CARR’S SOFTBALL GAME A HOMERUN
DALLAS—Jerry Jones once said he “paid retail” for Brandon Carr last off-season, but the $50-million cornerback gives back to the community in spades. After beginning the day with a youth football camp in Duncanville, the Cowboys cornerback headlined a celebrity softball event in Dallas’ Reverchon Park that included Cowboys players like Dez Bryant and Morris Claiborne, Cowboys alumni like Roger Staubach and Everson Walls, media personalities like 105.3 The Fan’s Mark Elfenbein and R.J. Choppy, and civic leaders like Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings.
Carr’s entrance into Reverchon Park was a dramatic helicopter entrance, a contrast to the humble cornerback’s style. However, his fellow passenger in the Methodist Hospital chopper was Grayson, a pediatric leukemia survivor who spanked the disease nearly two years ago.
The charity softball game was an effort to raise awareness for domestic violence. Proceeds went to Women Called Moses, an outreach that provides support for abused women and children.
