The Dallas Cowboys were out at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington Wednesday to take their best hacks at a charity home run derby benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Though hitters included coach Jason Garrett, former quarterback Troy Aikman and wide receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, it was a smaller name who finally hit a big shot over the wall; backup tight end John Phillips hit the day's sole home run.

However everyone went home happy after Reliant Energy wrote a check for $40,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
