Annual Artists & Writers
60th Annual Celebrity Softball Game




The Longtime Hamptons Tradition of the Annual Artists & Writers Softball Game Paid Tribute to the late Hollywood star Roy Scheider. Saturday Aug. 16, 2008 dozens of the Hamptons most celebrated artists, actors, politicians and writers gathered once again in East Hampton to compete in the 60th Annual Celebrity Softball Game to benefit three worthy local charities East End Hospice, East Hampton Day Care and Phoenix House.


Sixty years is an amazing tradition! And this year was all the more meaningful as it paid tribute to a former regular player in the game - the late actor Roy Scheider who passed away in March. Held at Herrick Park in historic East Hampton at the height of the summer season in the Hamptons, the game brings out thousands of local fans and scores of celebrities to cheer on their famous friends and neighbors. Prior to the game beginning filmmaker and actress Brenda Siemer Scheider, Roy's widow accepted on behalf of her husband a very special Most Valuable Player Award.


Also honored at the opening ceremony were fallen members of our U.S. Military forces who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Congressman Tim Bishop of Southampton introduced and paid a special tribute to nine of the families from Suffolk County who attended the game who lost their husbands, sons, fathers, and brothers.  He asked for a moment of silent prayer for them and all our troops.


Then the national anthem and the coin toss for first up.  After nine tightly played innings, some arguments over technicalities, close calls, and a few crowd pleasing shenanigans, the Artists trumped the Writers 4 to 2.  But the most important score of the day was the money raised for the three local charities. It amounted to more than 90,000 dollars, most of which came from the generosity of the sponsors who hang their banners on the batting cage and post a page in the program.
