• Chris Christie Wins Benefit Baseball Game for Slain NYPD Cops, Named MVP

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was named MVP at the “True Blue” star-studded charity softball game on Wednesday night.

    The governor, who is expected to announce a presidential campaign later this summer, bravely donned a baseball uniform and joined roughly 20,000 fans and a team of celebrities at Yankee Stadium to memorialize three New York City police officers that were killed in the line of duty in recent months.

    Christie is no Bambino, but he did not disappoint. Photos of the event show Christie throwing some intense throws and swinging for the fences, while at bat.

    Former Yankees manager Joe Torre, Giants coach Tom Coughlin, Jets coach Todd Bowles, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan and former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani were among the celebs who also played.


    Fans paid $12 for their seats and just $8 for parking. All net ticket proceeds will benefit the Silver Shield Foundation and the Widows’ and Children’s Fund, which benefit the families of slain police officers.
