Episode Summary

2009 All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game
7/12/09: This gritty group of gamers came to play. It was the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game, after all, the game in which Hollywood's heavyweights take swings and flash leather alongside Major League royalty, all in the spirit of good times. "This is the best," said St. Louis native Nelly, the hip-hop star and actor who hit a two-run home run, made a diving catch in center field, saw his team win the game, 10-8, and took home the game's co-MVP award along with former college basketball coach Bob Knight. "This is what you dream about." Dreams came true for scores of St. Louis fans when one of their idols, Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith, sprinted out to his position in the first inning for the National League and pulled off his signature backflip. And moments later, playing for the American League, Olympic medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson did Ozzie a few better, doing a decent portion of a floor exercise while heading to first base following a walk. The end result was a comeback win for the NL, which also was powered by a two-run homer by former Cardinals stolen-base expert Vince Coleman.moreless
