Fireworks all around at third annual Micah Hyde Charity Softball Game

Over $470,000 was raised for Hyde's "Imagine for Youth Foundation"

Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) - For the third time over the course of the Micah Hyde Charity Softball Game's history, the Buffalo Bills defense beat the offense in the annual affair at Sahlen Field in Downtown Buffalo.

Not even a rain delay kept Bills fans away from watching the stars of the team playing to help Hyde's "Imagine for Youth Foundation."

A sold out crowd saw plenty of home runs, athletic defensive plays, laughs, and over $470,000 raised.


WGR Bills beat reporter Sal Capaccio, once again, served as on-field emcee for the game.

"It was an amazing time again, and I'm always honored to be asked to be a part of this event," said Capaccio on Monday morning on WGR. "To see so many Bills fans and smiling faces of all ages already makes it worth it. Then to see how much money was raised for such a great cause, it was really awesome."

The game, itself, was capped off in dramatic and fitting fashion with Hyde blasting a walk-off grand slam for the defense to give the unit a 14-11 win.

Before that, offensive tackle Spencer Brown took the Home Run Derby title, battling with defending champion, Josh Allen. The Bills' starting quarterback and his right tackle were belting incredible home runs, even some that completely left the ballpark.
