Kate Upton, Erin Andrews And The Best Of The MLB Celebrity Softball Game

By / 07.11.11

Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game festivities began yesterday in Phoenix with the Futures game but more importantly – Kate Upton. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took part in this year’s Taco Bell Legends & Celebrity Softball Game, which featured “A-list celebrities, athletes and MLB legends” but seeing as the participating “celebrities” were Greg Gunberg, Chord Overstreet and Jason Aldean, we’ll go easy on that A-list label.
The score suggests that the National League team, featuring Mark Grace, Larry Fitzgerald and Ozzie Smith, defeated the American League team 5-3. However, the AL team had Upton and Erin Andrews, so that’s pretty much an automatic win. Sure, the NL team had Jennie Finch and Jordin Sparks, but come on – Kate Upton. Seriously. Kate. Upton.
And that brings me to today’s thought. I can understand the point of having guys like Overstreet, Aldean, and Nick Jonas in the softball game, because they have some current star power. But why not just load the rosters with girls like Upton, Jessica Stam, Chanel Iman, and Chrissy Teigen, who is friends with Andrews and Upton and Tweeted about the damn game enough that she should have been there? Last time I checked, baseball was America’s game, and our America likes very attractive women.
After the jump, check out Upton, Andrews, Sparks, Jennie Finch, and the other, far-less-important celebrities from last night’s Legends & Celebrity Softball Game.


Kate Upton uploaded this Paul Greengrass shakey-cam video to Twitter last night and I’m including it 1) because it’s Kate Upton and B) those guys are lucky as hell.

We’ll get to Mr. Cool Guy Soccer Player in a bit.
( )

Erin with Chris Pratt, who wonderfully plays Andy from Parks and Rec and is married to Anna Faris in real life, giving so many of us hope.
( )

I don’t know any of his songs, but my friends tell me that country singer Jason Aldean is quite popular. I’ll take their word for it.
( )

(L-R) Erin Andrews, Jordin Sparks, Jennie Finch and Kate Upton. Well done, MLB.
( )
Steve Garvey and the National League team celebrate their “victory”.
( )
Rollie Fingers and the most important mustache in sports history.
( )

I want to hang out with Rickey and listen to him tell old baseball stories just so I can hear him say, “And one time, Rickey did this…”
( )
Still not as impressive as his homeruns in The Scout.
( )

I think a fun idea for the future of the Legends game would be to have Roger Clemens randomly show up and throw a splintered bat at Piazza.
( )
Mark Grace congratulates actor Jesse Williams, presumably for making out with Rihanna in her “Russian Roulette” video.
( )
“Congrats on Brothers & Sisters being canceled.”
( )
Fun fact: Luis Gonzalez was named the MVP of this year’s Legends & Celebrity Game, which we’re sure was a career milestone.
( )

I’m betting he was cheered.
( )

I don’t know enough about American Idol to give insight on Jordin’s career but I know she looks a lot better now than she did on the show.
( )
I get the feeling that Jennie Finch probably gives her pitches names like she gives her kids.
( )

Jake is an actor on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place. I don’t know what that is, but I’m guessing he has more money than me.
( )

Is there an expiration date on my anger over how awful Heroes became after season one? Not likely.
( )

Did you know that Bill Simmons carries this guy’s baseball card in his wallet? Cool story, bro.
( )

There were a few other pictures of Chord falling down and then I learned that he is on Glee, so it all makes sense.
( )
“You guys can use my songs on your show, if you want.”
“No thanks.”
( )

Well look who’s showing off for Kate Upton… *adds Carlos Bocanegra to “The List”*
( )

So Bernie Williams is still alive.
( )

Pratt was hilariously upset that he was replaced by comedian and Marriage Ref host Tom Papa during the game.
( )

I can only hope this moment included him crying like he did when he confronted Greg Pikitis.
( )

( )

( )

( )

( )
( )

You know, something for the ladies.
( )

“Hi, I’m Mike Piazza. I’m a huge fan.”
( )
Jonas was actually booed during his introduction and first at-bat. The crowd may have thought he was Mexican.
