GRAND CHUTE, WI – Aaron Jones and Za’Darius Smith are set for something very different for this year’s Green and Gold Charity Softball Event. The duo will host the Green & Gold Charity Softball Challenge on Monday, August 16 at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium. The one-of-a-kind event will start at 7:05pm.
This event will feature a home run derby and a seven-inning competition with the offense versus the defense to raise money for charity. The parking lot opens at 4:30 with the gates to the stadium opening at 5:30pm.
Jones, who has re-signed with Green Bay, rushed for 1,104 yards, made 47 receptions for another 355 yards, and scored eleven touchdowns for the NFC North Champions on the way to an appearance in the NFC Championship Game last season.
“I’m so excited, I remember going as a rookie and seeing all the fans in the stands and I was in shock at the turn out,” said Jones. “We always have fun playing in the softball game and I am honored to be a team captain and co-host this year! Thank you for supporting us and local charities Packers fans!”
Jones will lead the offense against Smith and the defense in this special event.
Smith has been teammates with Jones since 2019. He was a Pro Bowl selection at linebacker in 2019 and 2020 and has 44.5 sacks in his pro career.
“Every year I’m in shock at the number of fans there to watch us play,” said Smith. “It’s nice to let them see us out of our football element and the competition gets heated. D-TRAINNNN!”
