Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz had the perfect level of expectations for the Celebrity Softball Game
The whole point of the celebrity side of the All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game is that the participants are not, and never were, professional baseball players. They don't do this for a living, and so expectations for their in-game performances might be a little tempered. Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz understands and accepts this.
"There is not a lot of expectation, which is great. I feel like I can barely meet that," he said before he took the field in the game, which will be televised on Monday on ESPN immediately after the T-Mobile Home Run Derby. Instead, his goals for the game were more in-line with his abilities:
That's not to say he wasn't quite excited to be there. "I'm stoked because of the Cubs," he said. "I'm also stoked because Andre Dawson had a locker next to me, or I had the locker next to him, which is pretty wild."
Meanwhile, Wentz's fellow bassist, Switchfoot's Tim Foreman, had been dreaming of home runs. But he wasn't aiming quite that high: "If I end up on base, that's a good day."
