    The celebrity team will include:

    - Ward 2 councilmember Jack Evans

    - Miss Maryland 2011 Allyn Rose

    - Tony Reali, of ESPN's Around the Horn

    - Chef Mike Isabella of Graffiato

    - Ward 6 councilmember Tommy Wells

    Many more will also take part in the event, although organizers note celebrity participants may drop out without notice.

    Fans who want to attend must have a valid ticket for the Sept. 4 game, which are on sale through a special ticket link at nationals.com/woundedwarriorsoftball.

    Organizers say for each $20 ticket purchased through the link, $5 will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. The $20 tickets will also be available at the box office upon request on Sunday, Sept. 4.
