The must-see summer event for Kansas City football fans is back!

Super Bowl LVII Champion, Marquez Valdes-Scantling (MVS) kicked off his Humble Beginnings Foundation with the 2023 charity softball game where he and over 50 of his Kansas City Chiefs teammates battled it out on the diamond for a good cause. The game featured a Homerun Derby won by Patrick Mahomes and a seven inning Chiefs offense vs. defense softball game with offense pulling out a win. MVS’s Humble Beginnings Foundation raised over $200,000 in year one donating a portion of the proceeds back to four Kansas City organizations he feels strongly about: KC Common Good, KC Mother’s in Charge, Cornerstones of Care and Community Linc. This year the event will be amplified with a pre-game tailgate in the parking lot. We are hopeful for a sellout crowd and even more impactful funds raised for the Greater Kansas City area.
MVS stated: “Growing up on the south side of St. Petersburg, FL, 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.”
