New York Jets linebacker Danny Lansanah held his first celebrity softball game fundraiser on Saturday to benefit youth growing up in Harrisburg.

Lansanah, a standout at Harrisburg High and the University of Connecticut prior to his NFL career, held the game at Metro Bank Park in the Capital City.

Proceeds benefit 20-year-old nonprofit M.O.S.E.L.F., which encourages fitness and character development through the game of baseball.

Lansanah says,  “It started with the camp that I had, I did the camp for 4 years and I wanted to change it up this year and bring something different to the city and we agreed on a softball game.  It just feels great to come back to my community and do something good and I like it.”

Also at the game were a number of NFL players with local ties, including Jordan Hill from Steel-High, Mike Cox from Red Land, Adrian Robinson from Harrisburg and Aaron Berry from Bishop McDevitt.
