PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Phillies players are known for their charitable work and Thursday was no exception. Jimmy Rollins hosted a BaseBOWL Tournament at Lucky Strikes in Center City with the proceeds benefiting the Rollins Family Foundation and the Artrhtis Foundation.

Sports figures and celebrities played two games to benefit children with arthritis. In addition to the money raised from the games, there was a silent auction taking place with signed Philllies jerseys and other collectors items. Among those in attendance were Ryan Howard and his son, Roy Halliday and Phillies broadcaster Gary Matthews. As for who’s the best, Rollins was very discerning.

“When we had Brett Meyers he was a very competitive bowler,” Rollins says. “Ryan Howard, just on reputation, he’s one of the top, but none of them beat me, (laughs)”

It’s the 7th year of the BaseBOWL event, and Rollins says this is his first year as a father which has changed his perspective a little bit. He says not everyone is blessed with a healthy child, free of any worry, and it hits home a lot more when you imagine that it could be your child.
