GRAND CHUTE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) More than 73-hundred fans filled Fox Cities Stadium near Appleton yesterday for the Green Bay Packers' annual charity softball game. The offense took an early lead and crushed the defense 26-to-13.
Jordy Nelson took over the hosting duties from the now-retired Donald Driver -- and Nelson pounded two homers to help his team's cause. Nelson is in the final year of his current contract -- and naturally, it was a major topic at his news conference at the game. The seventh year pro said he and his wife would not want to go anywhere else -- and Nelson hopes he can get to that point.
Brett Favre started the charity softball event almost two decades ago, and Driver kept it going after Favre left. Before yesterday's game, Nelson presented 75-thousand dollars to the faith-based group Young Life that works with middle school and high school youngsters.
