Stars Come Out For Beckett Bowl V

Josh Beckett's fifth annual bowling tournament to raise funds for Children's Hospital brought out a bevy of stars on Monday night. The Beckett Bowl, which took place at Lucky Strike Lanes across from Fenway, featured an impressive array of athletes and celebrities from Red Sox star Adrian Gonzalez to Seinfeld's John O'Hurley (Elaine's boss--seen in photo).

Since its inception, the Beckett Bowl has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Oncology Department at Children's Hospital Boston.

"This is something that's close to my heart and any time you can touch other people's lives, your life ends up being touched just the same," said Beckett—now an 11-year veteran who claimed a World Series ring with the Sox in 2007.

Among the other Red Sox in attendance were Tim Wakefield, Jason Varitek, Clay Buchholz, Mike Aviles, Dustin Pedroia, Jon Lester, Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Bard, Andrew Miller, and John Lackey.
