Adrian Peterson Takes BP Before All-Star Celebrity Softball Game (Video)

The ever-prepared Adrian Peterson got in a few licks in the batting cage before Sunday night’s All-Star Weekend celebrity softball game at Target Field. Can never get in enough licks in the batting cage before taking the field for a celebrity softball game.


Peterson will take the field with other Minnesota sports luminaries including Jack Morris, Jim Thome, Maya Moore and Zach Parise. But not Kevin Love who was scratched from the event for reasons that should not require elaboration.

Celebrities scheduled to appear include Nelly, Rob Riggle, Andrew Zimmern, Dylan O’Brien and Charlie McDermott.

The game will be televised by ESPN after Monday night’s home run derby. Hit a home run Adrian. And don’t run anyone over. It’s just a friendly celebrity softball game.
