Hollywood funnymen host celebrity wiffle ball game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Three Hollywood funnymen are back at home in Kansas City this weekend for their annual Big Slick Poker Tournament.

Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis and Rob Riggle took the field at the "Little K" at Kauffman Stadium Friday night to host a celebrity wiffle ball game before the Royals took on the Detroit Tigers.

The game is part of their "Big Slick Weekend," where all proceeds benefit Children's Mercy Hospital.

"I don't think that we're unique necessarily, I'm sure many people do things from where they're from, but for me personally, I just feel it's nice to feel connected to where I grew up, and to still feel a part of the community."


The actors will host a poker tournament Saturday at Harrah's Casino.

Then they move to the midland for an auction and party tomorrow night.

The three say their favorite thing to do while home is eat barbeque and hang out with family and friends.
