By on September 21, 2011

Dean Ween, guitarist and founding member of long running avant-pop duo
Ween will be hosting “Dean Ween’s October Classic,” a charity baseball
game (baseball! not softball) Sunday  October 2 at the New Hope High
School (182 West Bridge Street) in his native New Hope, Pennsylvania with
all proceeds  benefiting the American Cancer Society. Gates open at
12:30PM and game time is 1:30PM. Admission is $5.

Ween lead singer Gene Ween will be performing the National Anthem, and
Glenn McClelland (ex Blood, Sweat & Tears, currently in the Ween) will be
providing organ music throughout the afternoon.  Celebrity players will
include Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age).  The rest of the players
responded to an open-invitation solicitation from Dean via his personal
Facebook page.  All the players have contributed $25 to cover the cost of
team jerseys and to benefit the charity.

There will be food catered by Ryan Jameson Catering, water and soft drinks
for sale, and commemorative t-shirts, caps as well autographed jerseys and
baseballs.  All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
