Tri-City area firefighters and police are competing today in an annual charity baseball game at Gesa Stadium.
Gates open at 4 p.m. and the game starts at 6. Police and fire equipment will be on display and fireworks will light up the sky after the game.
The seven-inning game is sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police Tri-City Lodge No. 7 and will raise money for the FOP Memorial Foundation/ Tri-Cities, which assists officers and their families in times of need or extreme distress.
The Fraternal Order of Police also will donate part of the proceeds to help the local MDA Foundation, Special Olympics and the Washington State Police Canine Retirement Assistance fund.
Admission to the game is two cans of food or nonperishable food or an unwrapped toy per person. Toys will be given to Toys for Tots and food will be taken to the Tri-Cities Food Bank.
Special items and gift cards will be raffled off during the game, which also includes entertainment by the Washington State Police Canine Association.
