EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. -- Chevy Chase provided a crucial run, and Alec Baldwin helped ensure that everyone did the right thing.
Chase blasted a line drive that helped turn the tide in favor of a team of the Artists team when it was down 2-0 in a star-studded Hamptons charity softball game against the Writers.
The Artists went on to win 4-2, their second victory in the series in two years.
Baldwin was an umpire for Saturday’s contest at the far east end of Long Island.
It was the 60th installment of the annual Artists and Writers Game, a tradition started by artists including Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning.
Saturday’s game raised more than $60,000 for hospice, day care and drug rehabilitation services. It also was played in memory of actor Roy Scheider, a veteran of the Artists team, who died in February at age 75.
