The new format gave the current players a chance to interact with the players they looked up to growing up. Familiar names and new ones from the draft joined in the competition.  The other dugout was filled with pro-bowlers, MVPs, and Super Bowl champions, including Packers legend Brett Favre started the classic before Donald driver took over.

There was plenty of trash talk from both sides, but it was a good time for fans and players alike.

“7000 fans here, they sold it out, so I think that speaks to how they support us," said Aaron Jones. 

Though several platers had swung and a miss calls, three of the players swinging for the fences made it over. 

A close win for the current packers, but the veteran’s left it all out there. 

With the help of the green and gold faithful, the Donald driver foundation is focused on helping the underprivileged within the state

"If we continue to impact the lives right here in the state of Wisconsin, then we've done our job," said Donald Driver.

With a big 5-4 win for the stars, James Jones is going to have to make good on the Recees and Snickers bets he says he placed beforehand.
