Would you be interested in having the opportunity to meet Charlie Batch, Ryan Clark and ME?! I know at least one of those things might excite you (meeting me, of course), and here’s your chance to make it happen. On Tuesday, November 16, the NFLPA is having a One Team Tour Tailgate event at the North Shore Saloon in Pittsburgh from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Similar events have already been held in Green Bay and Minnesota.
As of now, the confirmed guests are Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch, safety Ryan Clark, head of the NFLPA DeMaurice Smith, and three-to-five additional current Steelers that have yet to be announced.
Here are the complete details…
- The NFLPA One Team Tour tailgate event in Pittsburgh will be held next Tuesday, November 16 at North Shore Saloon.

- The purpose is to say thank you to NFL fans, union members and various leaders in the city.
- Ryan Clark & Charlie Batch are confirmed as are several former players.
