Myles Turner expecting strong support at 2018 softball challenge

Pacers, Softball, Victory Field, Nate McMillan

Myles Turner is co-hosting the Caroline Symmes Celebrity Softball Challenge with former Colt Robert Mathis for the first time on Thursday.

He took over the reigns from several former Pacers before him. First Roy Hibbert, then George Hill and Paul George. Now it’s Turner, the longest-tenured player currently on the roster, stepping up (and to the plate).

This is the 10th annual softball challenge, which plays five innings and benefits the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. Tickets are $10; children three and under are free.
