Joe Flacco showed his two-sport skills on Sunday as he drove some deep shots out of the ballpark at Lardarius Webb's annual charity softball game.

However, it was punter Sam Koch that wound up winning the home run derby contest both Ravens players were participating in, writes The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. This actually doesn't surprise me, considering Koch is apparently good at everything. He's the best in the Ravens' locker room at the game cornhole, which the players play regularly during the season.

This year's game was held at M&T Bank Stadium for the first time. The event sold 15,000 tickets. Coach John Harbaugh and a good number of teammates participated in the game.

For offseason workouts, the Ravens have a stacked group numbers-wise at running back.

Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Justin Forsett, Cierre Wood and Fitzgerald Toussaint are all tailbacks on the roster, with fullbacks Kyle Juszczyk and Shaun Chapas taking two spots too. Rice, Pierce and Taliaferro would appear to be givens to make the roster — barring unforeseen circumstances.

Purple Reign Show's Phil Gentile takes a closer look at the running back depth, given the numbers are higher at the position than usual at this stage of the offseason.

CSNBaltimore.com's Ray Frager writes that the Ravens could get active in free agency, with teams getting active once again now that it's past June 1.
