Sunday Funday in Findlay

and all for a great cause!

A crowd of 2,000 came out to watch Big Ben and friends play a game of softball for the benefit of both the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation and the Findlay Athletics Department, and they weren’t disappointed!

“Incredible giving back by Ben Roethlisberger at today’s Charity softball game. Great number of Steeler greats here today!” — Jerry Snodgrass.

The two teams were made up of Ben’s Steelers teammates & friends and Findlay community leaders & officials. Ready to batter up with Big Ben was Brett Keisel, Cam Heyward, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marcus Gilbert, Al Villaneuava, David DeCastro, Ramon Foster and Maurkice Pouncey.

“Ben Roethlisberger talking to people in the middle of the game while he’s mic’d up. He just talked to a boy in the stands, asked him if he was having fun. Light hearted game, fans seem to be enjoying themselves.”— Cameron Fields, Toledo News.

Made the trip to @FindlayHS to see Ben Roethlisberger and some of his @steelers teammates play in a celebrity softball game with donations going to his foundation (that majorly supports K9 programs 🐶) Big Ben is ECSTATIC!

Officer Atkins and his K9 partner Deke keep a watchful eye under cloudy skies for the start of the game.


And it sure didn’t take long for the game to turn into a homerun derby!!











Whew!!!

“If I wasn’t working, I could have been the bat boy…or chased the softballs. I love chasing softballs! (sigh)” — K9 Sunny Miller, Hancock County Sheriff’s Office.
