NASHVILLE, TN (June 11, 2024) – On Monday, June 3rd at the Nashville Sounds’ First Horizon Park, over 7,000 spectators gathered to witness the Folds of Honor 4th annual Rock ‘N Jock Celebrity Softball Game, contributing to an exhilarating event that raised more than $436,000 for the FOH mission. Individually donating $50,000 to providing life-changing scholarships to the families of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders, Riley Green, captain of Team First Responders, also led his team to an impressive victory over team Military with a final score of 17-13. Green stated, “I’ve always been a big supporter of our first responders and military, so Folds of Honor is an organization I am proud to be involved with. They’ve done a lot of great work for people who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe.”

The event, made possible by title sponsor Jockey International, Inc.
