FOX Sports’ ‘Spring Training to the Troops’ Tour Sees Wade Boggs Caught Off-Guard by Softball Pitch (Video)

FOX Sports led a contingent of former Major League Baseball greats, current players, announcers and a selection of FOX Sports Girls on a goodwill trip to U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwoehr in Germany.

Grafenwoehr is one of the Army’s premier training bases in the world, and trip attendees trained with the soldiers, including morning physical training and various combat simulations.

The MLB participants conducted a youth baseball clinic, visited schools on base and even joined soldiers in a competitive game of Wiffle ball. The Wiffle ball game, which paired former and current MLB  players such as David Justice, Heath Bell, Wade Boggs and the FOX Sports Girls with soldiers from the 709th Military Police Battalion and the 172nd Infantry Brigade, was the marquee event during Fox Sports’ “Spring Training to the Troops.”

During the contest, Boggs — a Baseball Hall of Famer — was caught off guard by FOX Sports girl Liddy, as the former softball pitcher fired in a live softball instead of a Wiffle ball. Check out the clip below.
