On Sunday at the Great American Ball Park, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton played in a celebrity softball game as part of the festivities in advance of baseball’s All-Star Game in Cincinnati on Tuesday.
While being introduced prior to the game on Sunday, Dalton was booed mercilessly.
He has been an active member of life in Cincinnati – appearing at various events and starting a wonderful foundation with his wife that benefits seriously ill children.
Dalton slugged two home runs in the game, perhaps giving Cincinnati fans an omen to hold on to as they await the 2015 National Football League season. I have every confidence he’ll lead our football team to many more wins – including the playoffs and Super Bowl.
At least Dalton comes up big in celebrity softball games; he homered twice.
That said, the Bengals and Dalton agreed to a six-year contract worth $115 million in 2014, so it’s safe to say he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Andy Dalton has had his ups and downs with the Bengals.
“I’m not anxious about it. Everybody has got an opinion”. The hometown crowd didn’t receive Dalton all that warmly. He was booed again when he made his first appearance at the plate.
