Now that's Even Flow.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder managed to keep his balance on a boogie board while smacking a baseball as part of the "Trick Shot for Snowy" campaign spearheaded by the Calgary Flames.

The rock star, a native of Evanston, Illinois, was challeneged by his friend, Chicago Cubs general manager Theo Epstein.

Tweet from @PearlJam: #TrickShot4Snowy #SnowyStrong

This isn't the first entry in the challenge that featured impressive athletics on a wakeboard. Flames director of communications and media relations Sean Kelso backhanded a ball into a net while staying afloat on a board.

There were plenty of other submissions from those outside the Flames organization as well, from Gritty to Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas.

The Flames started the Trick Shot for Snowy campaign in support of Chris Snow, their assistant general manager who was diagnosed with ALS last year. June was ALS awareness month. The campaign has already raised over $186,000

The team is inviting anyone who can to share thier trick shot video and donate to ALS research. You can learn more at
