First up for the New Orleans Saints: the Indianapolis Colts. A few weeks later: vampires.

Saints runningback Lynell Hamilton and fullback Kyle Eckel on Thursday were announced as members of the New Orleans all-star team that will take Zephyr Field on March 20 for a charity baseball game against cast members from the "Twilight" movies.

A portion of the money raised by the ticket sales will go toward Haiti earthquake relief, as well as the Blood Center of Southeast Louisiana and the 9th Ward Field of Dreams.

Rosters are still being finalized, but the "Twilight" team will include actor Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the "Twilight" movies. He will be joined by Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz and Tyson Houseman, all of whom appeared in last year's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" and are scheduled to appear in June's "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."

Local actor Wayne Morgan, who is helping to organize the event and who will play on the New Orleans all-stars team, said he expects more roster annoucements in coming weeks.

Tickets to the game are $25 and are available online at http://fantrips.travel/twilightfantrips/ .

Note: a post-game autograph session and a concert will follow the event. To find out more about these activities contact fantrips directly.
