Twilight stars have reportedly been lined up to play baseball with members of the New Orleans Saints in a bid to raise money for the Haiti earthquake relief fund.

According to People, cast member Peter Facinelli - Carlisle Cullen in the vampire franchise - will captain a team of actors including Chaske Spencer (Sam), Alex Meraz (Paul) and Tyson Houseman (Quil).

They will face off against NFL players including Kyle Eckel and Lynell Hamilton.

All proceeds from the exhibition game, which will take place in New Orleans on March 20, will be given to the American Red Cross, Hope For Haiti Now, the 9th Ward Field of Dream and other local charities.

The event, dubbed 'Vampire Baseball', will also reportedly include autograph signings, meet-and-greets and an after-party show.
