The Athletes Unlimited Softball is one of its kind, a softball tournament that has players switch teams each week. This switching happens on the basis of their performance and allows the better performing athletes to earn more money throughout the season. A total of 57 women are participating in the upcoming season and can be watched on CBS Sports Network.
To show their support for the show, multiple celebrities have come forward and encouraged the younger generation to have more female sports heroes. The celebrities who have thrown the first pitch were those such as Natalie Portman, Billie Jean King, Abby Wambach, Amy Robach and Sen. Tammy Duckworth.

Bill Murray Recent Headlines:
Murray recently made headlines when he was accused of using The Doobie Brother’s song, Listen to the Music without paying for it for his apparel, William Murray Golf’s ad for the Zero Hucks Given Tshirt.
What took a humourous course, the legal team of the 1970s rock band sent the actor a cease and desist letter and suggested changing the name of his Tshirt from Zero Hucks Given to Zero Bucks Given.
They compared Murray to Donald Trump, who also happens to use music without paying the royalties to the artist and called the T-shirts “so damn ugly”.
As a fun banter between the two representatives, Murray’s team also drafted a much cheeky letter commending them to look at the incident positively.
They offered to revamp the closet of the band members with their “ugly” golf T-shirts. Lastly, Murray’s reps proposed the idea to collaborate on The Doobie Brother’s 50th-anniversary event in 2021 as “world-class entertainers” who both try to “make (people) smile”.
