Batter Up: Twilight Stars to Play Baseball, Cajun style

01/28/2010 at 11:40 AM EST

Bloodsuckers playing baseball for charity? Okay, we'll bite.

Twilight fans can watch stars from the Twilight series square off against some Saints – the New Orleans Saints, to be exact – in a March 20 charity baseball game to benefit Haitian earthquake relief efforts.

Team Vampire includes Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz and Tyson Houseman. Their professional athlete competitors include fullback Kyle Eckel and tailback Lynell Hamilton, members of the Super Bowl-bound Saints. (No word if Reggie Bush will have an at-bat.)

The exhibition game will take place in the Big Easy as part of a Celebrity Vampire Baseball in New Orleans event that includes other opportunities to mingle with the stars.

Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, Hope for Haiti Now and local organizations. The Blood Center will also host – what else? – a blood drive during the event.

Let's just hope the only blood is drawn there – and not on the field.
