Dr. Sport: Canadians raise funds for St. Paul's Hospital Foundation with annual celebrity softball game

SCENE & HEARD: The Vancouver Canadians’ annual celebrity softball game at Nat Bailey Stadium on Wednesday was all about raising funds for St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation and its awareness of the risks of heart disease across the Lower Mainland.

It did all of that, highlighted by a $5,000 cheque from UFC Canada director of operations Tom Wright. The former Canadian Football League commissioner (2002 to 2006) not only donned a jersey, but also made an impressive pop-fly catch in foul territory.
