The MGM Rewards All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game is an annual game that brings former Major League Baseball all-stars and celebrities together in a friendly exhibition. The game is played the day before the Home Run Derby. It has been sponsored by RadioShack and Taco Bell; since 2022, MGM Resorts sponsors.
The game started in 2001 in Seattle and is played at the site of that year's All-Star Game. It is broadcast on tape delay on MLB Network. The current broadcast team is Robert Flores and Lauren Gardner.
From 2001 to 2006, the game used standard softball rules with a temporary wall [250 ft (76.2 m) from home plate] on the field. In 2007 & since 2022, the rules were changed. Instead of 7 innings, there are only 5 innings with everyone on the team batting, whether or not they are in the field. From 2008 to 2012, it is unknown how long the game lasted. From 2013 to 2019 & 2021, six innings were played. A 2022 rule change saw a 10-batter limit or three outs, whichever comes first, to conclude innings (which won't apply to final inning of regulation, if trailing team is behind). In place of extra innings, a swing-off was introduced. If the teams were tied at the end of 5 innings, managers from each team would pick three batters, who'll get one swing each. Whoever hits the most home runs in the 3 rounds will win and get credited one run & hit each; otherwise, teams play sudden-death rounds until one team hits a home run.
The 2001 RadioShack Legends and Celebrity Softball Game was played on Sunday, July 8, 2001 at Safeco Field in Seattle, Washington. ESPN broadcast the game after the Home Run Derby. For this game the teams are named after specialty coffee drinks as a nod to the coffee industry in Seattle.
