Shockingly, they did not ask local celebrity and media personality Andrew Roberts to take the field. Surely at this point in my career I've gained at least as much name recognition as Jack Trudueau currently has. Probably not.

Last year's rosters were comprised of many of the biggest names of the Colts spanning the last several decades, including Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney, Bill Brooks, Bob Sanders and Reggie Wayne.

The menacingly named “Home Run Hitters” consisted of team captain Robert Mathis, Peyton Manning, Kelvin Hayden, Gary Brackett, Ed Johnson, Tyjuan Hagler, Marcus Howard, Marlin Jackson, Antonio Johnson, Eric Foster, Jamie Thomas & Cornelius Lewis of the Indianapolis Colts, Josh McRoberts of the Indiana Pacers, Ultimate Fighter Chris Lytle, Carlos Diaz of the TV show Extra, former Colts Bill Brooks and Jack Trudeau, Radio and TV personalities Bob Kravitz, Brian Wilkes, David Barras, Christine Minka, former MLB player Ryan Thompson, Miss Indiana Megan Meadors and former IU Basketball star Joe Hillman. The visiting team, the “Softball Sluggers” consisted of captain Stephen Graham and Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers, Dwight Freeney, Bob Sanders, Reggie Wayne, Raheem Brock, Dante Hughes, Michael Coe, Taj Smith, Tyrell Sales, Pierre Garcon, Mike Taviliili, Chad Simpson and Tim Jennings of the Indianapolis Colts, former Colts Jeff George and Geneo Riley, Radio and TV personalities EddieWhite, Rich Nye, Michael Grady, Chris Hagan, Jeff Breedlove, Julie Patterson, Amber Stearns, Jeane Coakley, John Cimasko and author Lou Harry.
