Chris Christie plays ball

(CNN) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a catcher on his high school baseball team, stepped up to the plate again Monday.

The New Jersey Republican joined a number of sports stars and celebrities to play in an annual charity softball game fundraising for the Boomer Esiason Foundation - an organization aimed at finding a cure for cystic fibrosis - as well as for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Christie said the biggest difference between Monday's game, held at Yankee stadium, and his days as a high school catcher in New Jersey is about 40 years’ time.

"I'm 40 years older, you know 35 years older, that's about it. So that's the biggest difference. And then probably the way I play but we'll have to wait to see that," he told reporters before the game.
