Travis Kelce joins MLB’s celebrity softball game, talks playing Cleveland Browns

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end was a member of Team Cleveland at the MLB celebrity showcase.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce participated in the MLB’s Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday. Here are some photos from the event:

The game was in the “Cleveland vs. the World” format. Kelce, who was born and raised in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, was of course a member of Team Cleveland.

Local Cleveland radio station 92.3 The Fan spoke to Kelce prior to the game.

Kelce was asked about potential of playing the Cleveland Browns in an AFC playoff game.

“You know what? It was my first time playing in the Dawg Pound last year,” Kelce said, “and I always dreamt about scoring touchdowns in the Dawg Pound. I just didn’t know it was going to be for the wrong team, and everybody was going to be flicking me off when I scored.”

Kelce smiled.

“I love Cleveland to death, I really do,” he continued. “When it comes to football, you know what I mean, good luck boys. That’s all I can say.”
