A large group of Dallas Cowboys will be crossing over to the world of baseball tomorrow (May 23rd) to compete in a home run derby in the name of charity.  Head coach, Jason Garrett and several players,  will see who can ding the most home runs at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Here is the official press release:

Reliant will donate $500 for each home run hit by a player during the event and will also have 11 bull’s-eye targets for a chance for the players to hit in the amounts of $1,000, $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000. Reliant will also double the donation amounts for the last ball, known as the “money ball,” hit by each player. About 150 members of the BBBS organization and the Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club, presented by UnitedHealthcare, will attend the event to cheer on the Cowboys.

Besides Jason Garrett, the players that will be competing include Jason Witten, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, DeMarco Murray, John Phillips, Doug Free, Sean Lee, Jason Hatcher and Kevin Olgetree.

My guess is that it will be Jason Witten or Sean Lee going yard the most.  I think both of them are more athletic and have a better shot at hitting  a home run.  Then again, those linemen are big and could probably use a bat as a toothpick.  Would be interesting to watch, except apparently, it’s not open to the public.  As soon as I get the results, I’ll update this post.

In the meantime, out of the group of Dallas Cowboys who will be competing, who do you think will go yard the most in this home run derby?  Do you think any of them can even hit a home run?
