The game will be the fourth straight year that the popular Hyde has hosted the charity softball game to raise funds for his Imagine for Youth Foundation. The foundation was started in 2015 to help financially disadvantaged kids thrive academically and athletically by providing them with necessary supplies, resources and equipment. Last year, the game raised $400,000 to benefit Hyde's Foundation. Hyde's game has become the must-attend event in Buffalo allowing Bills mafia to interact with their favorite players in a casual environment at a great ballpark, while raising money for critical needs across western New York.

Other players expected to be part of the game include Ryan Van Demark, Damar Hamlin, Ja'Marcus Ingram, Tommy Doyle, Justin Shorter, Tyrell Shavers, Cam Lewis, La'el Collins, Dave Edwards, Joe Andreessen, Connor McGovern and Darrynton Evans. Other players are to be announced.

"This softball game is an amazing opportunity to spend time with teammates while also raising money for some amazing organizations in the western New York community," Hyde said. "We will work together as a team, with the support of Bills Mafia, to lift up the community."

In 2023, Hyde hit a walk-off grand slam in the Defensive's 14-11 win. Spencer Brown won the 2023 Home Run Derby, defeating two-time derby champ, Josh Allen, in extra swings.

Game Details:

The event will start with a tailgate party at from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m on the Plaza in front of Sahlen Field including bounce houses, a beer garden, food trucks and more.
