Daddy Yankee and Anuel AA Play Baseball in MLB's 2019 Celebrity Softball Game
Nothing screams Sunday Funday like a good ol’ game of ball, and that’s exactly what Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA, and a bunch of other celebrities were up to this weekend. On Sunday (July 7), a wave of stars in the music, film, and television industry gathered at the Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio for MLB’s annual celebrity softball game.
This year’s roster was divided into two teams: Team Cleveland, which included names such as Drew Carey, Machine Gun Kelly, Quavo, and Hall of Famer Jim Thome; and Team World, including celebrities such as Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA, Jamie Foxx, and Dascha Polanco.
Yankee, who aspired to become a professional baseball player before becoming one of the pioneers of reggaeton, played third base and was pitcher during Sunday’s game, his publicist Mayna Nevarez told Billboard. In true Yankee fashion, his global hit “Con Calma” blasted throughout the field when it was his turn to bat.
A true baseball aficionado, Yankee owns a softball team in Puerto Rico called “El Cartel Softball,” which focuses on doing charitable games.
On Instagram, Latin trap sensation Anuel shared a photo of him and Yankee in the locker room. “Smile at life because it’s only one!!!!” he expressed before Team World ultimately won the game with a final score of 21-16.
