Sherman Police and Fire face off on the softball diamond for a good cause
SHERMAN (KTEN) -- Sherman Police and Fire got a chance at bragging rights in Saturday's charity softball game in Fairview Park.
The conditions were extremely windy, but the weather did not stop the them from playing ball for the Grayson County Children Advocacy Center.
"The exciting part is collecting the money and doing something great for the child advocacy center," said Division Fire Chief, Billy Hasrtsfield.
Of course, there was some fun smack talking between the neighboring departments.
"We are going to have a good time, and obviously beat the fire department," said Officer Austin Ross.
The Sherman Police Department happens to be a multidisciplinary team members to the Children Advocacy Center. They decided that this would be a great idea to benefit the center by raising awareness with donations.
"It is really neat for them to come to us and want to bring awareness and the things that we do, it is a really cool thing," said Advocacy Coordinator, Summer Junior.
Both departments hope this is the start for something annually.
