HIGHLAND, Mich. — Joe Kocur unites former and current Red Wings every summer for his annual softball games.

This Saturday, he's back at it again. Highland's Duck Lake Pines Park will host three games at 12:15 p.m., 2:15 p.m., and 4:15 p.m.

Red Wings greats like Kris Draper, Darren McCarty, Dino Ciccarelli, Mickey Redmond, and Chris Osgood will join Dylan Larkin, Darren Helm, Danny DeKeyser, and Jeff Blashill. Other local athletes like TJ Lang, Ryan Kesler, and Andy Dirks are scheduled to play, too.

The Joe Kocur Foundation for Children hosts events for families at adjacent fields all afternoon. TIckets are available at the door, and proceeds benefit families chosen by Kocur.

WXYZ's Brad Galli will again be participating in the games.
