Come Sunday, July 27, 2008, NBC Universal and the radio station Z-100 will go head to head in the third annual Autism Speaks Celebrity Charity Softball Game!

If you’re near the KeySpan Park at 1904 Surf Avenue in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York, you’ll get a real treat watching some of daytime’s biggest stars sweaty-up and get down and dirty to win the game for their team – and to benefit Autism Speaks!

Actors set to take part in the event include As the World Turns’ Jon Prescott (Mike) and Marnie Schulenburg (Alison) and Guiding Light’s Caitlin VanZandt (Ashlee), Kane Manera (Grady), and Bonnie Dennison (Susan), as well as Lonny Ross (30 ROCK), Skeery Jones and Dave Brody (Z100), Dave Marciano (The Shield), Jason Cameron (DIY Network), Evan Farmer, (ex-TLC’s While You Were Out), Michael Sommerville (Comedian), Jimmy “Mouth of the South” Hart (WWE), and Josh Barrett and Michael Kelly (HBO’s Generation Kill).
