Packers' Turner Competes in Wentz's AO1 Event, Catches Up with CHTV

Green Bay Packers guard/tackle Billy Turner was back in his old stomping grounds in Fargo, ND on Wednesday 

New Green Bay Packers guard/tackle Billy Turner was back in his old stomping grounds in Fargo, ND on Wednesday to play a little softball.  Turner was on "Team Offense" at former teammate Carson Wentz's charity softball event.  The event benefitted Wentz's Audience of One foundation, funding three key ministries in Philadelphia, Haiti and the Upper Midwest.  

Turner took some cuts in batting practice, and even participated in the home run derby, though Turner did not advance to the finals.  Turner and the offense (including Colts T/G Joe Haeg) took home the big prize, defeating NFLers Nick DeLuca, Kyle Emanuel, Chris Board and Team Defense by a score of 21-16.  

Cheesehead TV's Ross Uglem was on the scene and had a chance to briefly catch up with Turner.

Turner (and the rest of the Packers) are due back in camp at the end of July.
