Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Joey Logano to Meet in Third-Annual Dover vs. Pocono Celebrity Softball Game on April 21

Darrell Wallace Jr., Todd Bodine, members of the media and other special guests round out the lineups

As part of their annual Team Dover vs. Team Pocono Celebrity Softball Game, Dover International Speedway and Pocono Raceway will go head-to-head for the third time next Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at ARM & HAMMER Park in Trenton, N.J.

This event will feature the two most recent winners of the Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt Jr. (2014) and Joey Logano (2015), along with Darrell Wallace Jr., driver of the No. 6 Ford EcoBoost in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, and Todd Bodine, two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion and current Fox Sports 1 analyst. The rosters from each team will be rounded out with members of national and local motorsports media, as well as other local media personalities, Miss Coors Light Amanda Mertz, and a few other special guests.

The softball series between the two tracks is currently tied at one game apiece. Pocono came from behind to win the inaugural game in 2012 and Dover evened the score with a walk-off victory two years ago.

Access to the celebrity softball game is free with a ticket to the April 21 matchup between the Thunder and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Individual tickets for the Trenton Thunder’s baseball game start at just $11 and are currently on sale. All children ages 12 and younger will receive a voucher for a free hot dog, drink and bag of pretzels upon entrance. Additionally, it will be “1-Dollar Dog Night” for all fans, courtesy of Black Bear Franks. For tickets to this special event, please call 1-609-394-3300 or visit

Gates for the softball game will open at 4 p.m. with the event beginning at 4:30 p.m. Following the softball game, time permitting, Earnhardt and Logano will throw out the first pitch for that evening’s 7 p.m. baseball game versus the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Throughout both the softball and baseball games, both tracks will be promoting and giving away tickets to their respective NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races being held on Sunday, May 31 (Dover) and Sunday, June 7 (Pocono).
