Little League teams from across the state will attend the 19th annual Molina Celebrity Baseball game and end up winners themselves.

Four to five teams will each receive $300 for attending the game and during the seventh inning stretch and additional $16,500 will be given to those teams.

The game is on Jan 30 at Scottsdale Stadium at 11 a.m.

Major League Baseball players and individuals from other sports will participate in the game, including Baseball Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry.

Money generated from the game will be donated to the Scottsdale Boys and Girls Club, Summer Nights at Scottsdale Stadium and the Baseball Assistance Team, in addition to the little league teams.

Prior to the game a charity Run for Kids will take place. It is for children ages 5 through 12 and they will get to run on the stadium's warning track. Registration starts at 10 a.m. at the ballpark.
