DETROIT (WWJ) A celebrity baseball game Sunday will raise awareness and funds to fight cystic fibrosis and support those battling the disease.

To benefit The Bonnell Foundation, members of the Detroit media from radio and television stations will face off against law enforcement, including Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee. It happens 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Liberty Park in Sterling Heights.

But Godbee says it’s more than a game.

“Cystic fibrosis has a tremendous impact on the quality of life of a number of Americans,” Godbee said. “(It’s important) for us to do something not only to bring attention to the Bonnell Foundation but also to raise funds for research and support of people who are battling a chronic disease.”

Visitors will see Godbee, WWJ legal analyst and Talk Radio 1270 talk show host Charlie Langton, 97.1 The Ticket’s Bill McAllister, Jackie Paige of Talk Radio 1270, Buck & Coop from 98.7 AMP, Sterling Heights Police Chief Michael Reese, Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, Royal Oak police officers — and other media celebrities — swing for the fences.

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes chronic and fatal disease and interferes with digestion.

Want to see it? Tickets are $20 per person or $50 for a family of four.
