Team Carton and WFAN's celebrity softball in New Rochelle

A celebrity softball game raised money for the city's new athletic facility.

Among the many things you'll pick up from listening to "Boomer and Carton" on WFAN each weekday morning, here are three:

1) Craig Carton grew up in New Rochelle.

2) Carton can create a humorous on-air moment when he asks guests to be his friend, hang out, exchange numbers, do whatever.

3) Carton and Boomer Esiason are involved in numerous charitable endeavors.

The latest of those endeavors involved a celebrity softball game in New Rochelle that put the WFAN team against the New Rochelle All-Stars. It helped raise funds for the town's new softball field, and the embedded video above has two cameos from former big-time former New York stars (not including co-host Esiason).

And here are quite a bunch of photos from the game.
