The potential 2016 Republican presidential hopeful took part in the iTrueBlue celebrity softball game in New York. The game was played to raise money and honor the memories of NYPD officers Brian Moore, Wejnian Liu and Rafael Ramos, all of whom recently died in the line of duty.

We’re also guessing former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s feet were hurting him Thursday morning, thanks to his curious decision to wear golf spikes for the game.
