Let's be honest. Throughout the NFL offseason the majority of news you hear is negative. Players being caught using Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs), players being arrested and even a player being investigated for shooting himself.

There is a tremendous amount of good being done by NFL players in the offseason, but most don't draw the attention of the negative "spin machine" which is the national media. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of those events took place Saturday in Washington, PA when Antonio Brown hosted a celebrity softball game to raise money for Children's Hospital Foundation of Pittsburgh.

The lineups had plenty of teammates from the Steelers are on them. Take a look at which teammates joined Brown for this charity event.

Brown was joined by fellow receivers Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates, linebackers Ryan Shazier, Vince Williams and Arthur Moats, kicker Chris Boswell, tight end David Johnson, fullback Roosevelt Nix and the big guys up front, Ramon Foster, Marcus Gilbert, and Maurkice Pouncey. Former Steelers Will Allen, Wesley Saunders and Merril Hoge were also on hand to help out.

This is the first of many celebrity softball games Brown hopes to host to raise money for Children's hospital. For all the good happening, the players certainly had fun as well. Take a look at some videos and pictures which circulated on social media from the event.
