GRAND CHUTE, Wis. — Team Offense lived up to its name Saturday afternoon at Fox Cities Stadium.
Captained by Packers receiver Davante Adams, the offensive team won the Green and Gold Charity Softball Game, 16-8.
The game raised money for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin and various youth sports organizations.
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, who tore his Achilles tendon this week, threw out the game's ceremonial first pitch.

Adams' offensive team included Geronimo Allison, Aaron Jones, David Bakhtiari, Jace Sternberger, Jamaal Williams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jake Kumerow and last year's home run derby champion Robert Tonyan, who successfully defended that title on Saturday.
"It's something that, really, Coach LaFleur has been pushing this offseason," Adams said. "We've been doing a lot more than we have in the past as far as getting together and doing different activities. Whether it's bowling (or this event), it's been a regular thing, guys meeting up. We've got a lot of new guys, new coaches, a lot of stuff going on so we've got to get on the same page and one of the best ways to do that is doing stuff away from the field, so we can be in the classroom, in the field all day, get to know each other's style of play, but this thing goes deeper than just in between the lines."
Martinez captained the defensive team that included Kenny Clark, Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Adrian Amos, Kevin King, Kyler Fackrell, Jaire Alexander, Oren Burks, Josh Jackso and Dean Lowry.
