KJ showed off his athletic talents as well as his artistic

talents at the Tommy Maddox Celebrity Softball Game in Pittsburgh,

Pennsylvania. The game benefited the Steelers Quarterback’s “Tommy Gun

Foundation”. Fans were treated to a pregame autograph session and

Kevin-John’s portrait of Tommy was unveiled to kick off the evening.

KJ was joined by Pittsburgh Steeler standouts Maddox, Mark Bruener,

Rodney Bailey, Robin Cole and Louis Lipps among others for the game

against former Pirates and Penguins. The Steelers team was victorious,

but not before a pro-wrestling style skirmish between KJ and Rodney

Bailey.
