Saints' Moore hosts softball tournament for charity

Moore is better where Saints football is concerned.

Lance Moore, as we all know, is great at receiving... But, he's not to bad on the giving end, either.

There will be proof this weekend as Moore and former Saints standout Darren Sharper host their annual Big Shot Softball Tournament in Metairie. Teams from Louisiana and Mississippi will compete in the double elimination affair at Mike Miley Stadium.

One of the highlights... The Home Run Derby.   Saints running back Pierre Thomas and quarterback Drew Brees were neck and neck last time.

It's all in the name of the many local charities Moore and Sharper support here.  Moore is, in fact, from Ohio but New Orleans is, as the song says, his Louisiana home.

Said Moore, "Yeah, I mean this is my adopted home. This community has adopted me. It's important to me how much I give back here. And, fans show support for me...I've got to show support for them."

You can find out more information about the event and its charitable recipients at www.lancemoorecc.org.
