Frank Mason III to Appear at T-Bones Stadium
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The Kansas City T-Bones have announced that former Kansas University Jayhawk and current member of the NBA Sacramento Kings, Frank Mason III, will host the inaugural Frank Mason III & Friends Charity Softball game at 3:00 pm on Saturday June 16 at T-Bones Stadium.
The T-Bones along with Clear Vision Marketing Group will present Frank Mason III and a few of his celebrity friends as they compete against each other for a day filled with entertainment, rivalry, philanthropy, and even a home run derby. Players scheduled to appear (as of release date) include the following: Wayne Selden (Grizzlies/KU alum), Sherron Collins (KU), Wesley Iwundu (Magic/K-State), Rodney McGruder (Heat/K-State), Jahidi White (NBA alum); Frank Mason III will also appear with more players to be announced later.
"I feel that it is my responsibility to come back here every chance I get and stay connected to the community, and Clear Vision Marketing approached me with an opportunity to give back, have fun and to continue to share memorable moments with my Jayhawk family," said Mason.
The softball game will benefit the Children's Mercy Hospital & The National Youth Foundation. Mason added, "Everyone who knows me understands how important my education is to me. I want to motivate the youth to develop their literary skills through academic and team building projects, and I plan to achieve this with the help of The National Youth Foundation. I ask that on June 16th, Jayhawk fans come together for a day of fun to interact with me and other KU alumni at T-Bones Stadium."
"As a Jayhawk fan, I am thrilled that we'll be able to see Frank Mason showcase his athleticism a mere 26 miles east of where he created so many memories for KU's fans. While this is a slightly different playing surface, and significantly less-pressured event than what he's used to, I know he'll create an electric, and fan-friendly event. I'm proud that we can partner with Frank and his charities to create these memories," said T-Bones President Adam Ehlert.
