Richard Sherman hires "NFL Replacement Ref" for charity softball game

For those of you who didn't know already, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is hosting a charity softball game in July and he got a very special person to help call the game.

The replacement referee who helped the Seahawks score a week three victory against the Green Bay Packers in 2012 NFL Season.

The fine folks over at Pro Football Talk have the official details:

Sherman wrote on the Facebook page for the Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Game that the umpire will be Lance Easley, one of the replacement refs who handed the Seahawks a win over the Packers last season by ruling that Seattle had scored a Hail Mary touchdown as time expired. 
“Remember the Ref who called TD during the Green Bay Game Monday Night??? His name is Lance Easley and he is going to Umpire for us July 7th! Don’t be surprised if a few flags are thrown,” Sherman wrote.
I'm pretty sure that Lance will have an easier time calling balls and strikes.
