The Vanderbilt Legends Charity Softball Game is brainchild of New England Patriots star and Vandy alum Jordan Matthews. Jordan brings together NFL stars and other university football legends to go head-to-head on the diamond with men and women who serve as role models for ending violence against women and girls in Nashville. 

A Vanderbilt “Legends” team will include Jordan and current and former NFL players. The Real Heroes of Nashville team will be led by the YWCA's Sr. Director of External Affairs and AMEND Togehter AND Vanderbilt Basketball Team's all-time leading scorer, Shan Foster.

Last year's event featured a Charity Basketball Game in Memorial Gym. This year, we're playing softball on Hawkins Field. 


Vanderbilt Legends Charity Game Background

After taking a tour of the YWCA's Weaver Domestic Violence Center and learning about the violence prevention initiative AMEND Together, Jordan was compelled to help. Through Matthews Mission, Jordan is working to raise awareness for the YWCA's domestic violence programs. Proceeds will help Matthews Mission serve the community by benefiting the YWCA and AMEND Together. 

The Matthews Mission Fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee
