Despite some rain, Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde and the rest of his teammates put on a show downtown at the Buffalo Bisons’ Sahlen Field during Hyde’s third annual charity softball game.

The game, which benefits the Imagine for Youth Foundation (a non-profit whose mission, according to its Twitter account, is to ‘empower our youth and help them achieve a healthy, active and educated life’) was delayed by an hour due to rain showers but was entertaining nonetheless.

“This is amazing,” offensive tackle Dion Dawkins said. “Micah is doing things that a lot of us would love to do. There’s so many people that came out here not to watch us play football, but to see us swing a bat, have fun, tell jokes, laugh. Micah is the MVP for putting this together.

“There’s something special up here in Buffalo and something special about this team, and it shows. It’s obvious that we all enjoy each other’s company.”

The day’s events kicked off with a home run derby which came down to a playoff between starting quarterback Josh Allen (the defending champion) and offensive tackle Spencer Brown – which Brown won based on furthest swing on one hit.

Northtown Automotive and Equitable Advisors also presented a $400,000 check to Hyde and Imagine for Youth. A total of $470,000 will be made from sponsors, ticket sales and more.

For the third straight year, the game itself was won by the defense on a walk-off grand slam from Hyde.
