Charlie Batch’s annual In The Pocket event is an amazing fundraiser for the Best of The Batch Foundation and has become one of the best annual events in Pittsburgh. For the past six years, Charlie has invited me to come and perform for the athletes and VIPs in attendance. I had a blast hanging out with superfriends Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates – two of the best on and off the field. I also had the chance to catch up with longtime friend and former Steeler Trai Essex as well as meet Michael Vick. Mike was great to hang out with and I enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about him. After showing him a trick I literally had him running scared out of the room!
Last but certaintly not least, the man that makes it all possible: hometown hero Charlie Batch. Over the years, Charlie has truly been one of the nicest guys in Pittsburgh that I’ve had the honor of knowing. His commitment to our city’s youth and hard work of his foundation are unmatched. I look forward to continuing to participate in this event in years to come and encourage you to grab a ticket to 2016’s event benefiting this great cause.
