Gov. Chris Christie plays in charity softball game at Yankee Stadium (VIDEO)

Gov. Chris Christie took some time off from playing hardball with politicians to lending his bat and glove to a charity softball game on Monday.

The embattled governor participated in the fourth annual Bombers Boomer Broadway Softball Classic featured celebrities facing off against the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team and New York Yankees alumni in a friendly game at Yankee Stadium.

Christie and other celebrities took to the field to help raise money for wounded warriors and the Boomer Esiason Foundation that supports fighting cystic fibrosis.

And I guess saying the rotund Christie covered all the bases would be too easy.

Christie— who was a high school catcher — did catch the ball to make a crucial out at third base in the 7th inning with the bases loaded and played nine innings as his team eked out a 7-6 win for Boomer's side.

Christie is a regular guest on WFAN’s "Boomer & Carton," co-hosted by Esiason and Craig Carton.

The devoted baseball fan told reporters  before the game that he was happy to have a break from politics and said he hoped he wouldn’t get injured.

He also mentioned that he’d rather be at Citi Field — home of his beloved Mets.

Just watch that GW Bridge traffic back to the Jersey Turnpike.
