Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco was the site of Dirk Nowitzki's celebrity baseball game on Saturday night.

Lot's of folks showed up for this fun event. The money raised will benefit the children's charities of the Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation.

Dirk actually got three hits in this game, although it was clear the caliber of play wasn't exactly up to Major League standards.

Dirk's team was up 9-1 at one point.

So how loose was the defense? We saw a popup to right field by former Cowboys safety Roy Williams. Actor Geoff Stults in right watches the ball roll to the warning track.

In the meantime, Williams never slowed down, and got credit for an inside-the-park home run.

Williams' team came back to beat Dirk's team 19-11.
