It's only right with All-Star Weekend set to kickoff in New York that former Yankee and five-time All-Star Bernie Williams gets in on the action.

Before playing in the Legends and Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday at Citi Field, Williams and his All-Star Band will play a free concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at John J. Burns Town Park in the Town of Oyster Bay. The show is appropriately titled "From Centerfield to Centerstage."

Featured songs include La Salsa En Mi and Just Because. Both are from his first album, The Journey Within.

Williams' performance is part of the Music Under the Stars concert series.
