Kansas City, KS – Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver, Marquez Valdes-Scantling today announced “The Marquez Valdes-Scantling Charity Softball Game” benefiting his Humble Beginnings Foundation. The event will debut at Legends Field, home of the Kansas City Monarchs, on Friday, June 9th at 6:30pm. Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 17, 2023 at 1PM CST at MonarchsBaseball.com.

Super Bowl LVII Champion, Marquez Valdes-Scantling is kicking off his Humble Beginnings Foundation with a charity softball game raising proceeds for economically disadvantaged areas in the greater Kansas City area as he and his invited Kansas City Chiefs teammates, Chiefs legends, coaches and celebrities battle it out on the diamond for a good cause. This Friday Night Lights game will feature a Homerun Derby and a seven inning Chiefs offense vs. defense softball game.

MVS stated: “Growing up on the south side of St. Petersburg, Florida, I saw children in economically disadvantaged areas and a large population of homeless individuals. Personally, I was fortunate enough to have a tremendous family who sacrificed everything to provide for me. My family instilled in me the importance of volunteering and giving back to my community. Kansas City has welcomed me with open arms and I am excited to continue making an impact here on and off the field and showing the fans who I really am.” “We are thrilled to be hosting Marquez and his teammates in this Super Bowl winning year,” said Mark McKee, MaxFun Live and Kansas City Monarchs CEO. “We are committed to creating a world class experience for our fans year-round on and off the field and we could not be more excited to host what I’m sure will be a fun night for fans and a great benefit for local charities.
