From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Taco Bell All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game is an annual game that brings former Major League Baseball all-stars and celebrities in a friendly exhibition. The game is played the day before the Home Run Derby.

The game started in 2001 in Seattle and is played at the site of that year's All-Star Game. It is broadcast on tape delay after the Home Run Derby on ESPN. The broadcast team is Gary Thorne and former Major League pitcher Rick Sutcliffe.



From 2001 to 2006, the game used standard softball rules with a temporary wall on the field. In 2007, the rules were changed. Instead of 7 innings, there are only 5 innings with everyone on the team batting, whether or not they are in the field. In place of extra innings, a swing-off was introduced. If the teams were tied at the end of 5 innings, each team would pick a batter. The batter's team with most home runs out of five would be the winner.
