After assuming the reins of the annual softball game that had been run by left guard Ben Grubbs (who is now playing for the New Orleans Saints), Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb was a little curious about Sunday's turnout at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.

A significant number of fans attended the game, and a few observers who watched last year's contest said the turnout was much larger than last year's.  A couple of special guests were Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Seattle Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas. That was music to Webb's ears.

"It was nice," he said. "We wouldn't have this turnout if it wasn't for these fans and my teammates. They came out and had a great time, and when you have teammates like I do, things are going to turn out this way. We're just going to continue to give back to the fans and to the community. They're the best."
