The true hero's fighting to keep our streets safe everyday will soon showcase another talent. This weekend Toledo Fire and Toledo Police Departments will square off on the diamond.

First the Mud Hens take on Norfolk Tides at 4:05pm this Sunday. Then the 4th annual Battle of the Badges charity softball game will follow. Just one ticket gets you a seat for both games. Officers say the game creates a unique experience for the fans they severe and strengthens our community.

Greg Zattau, Patrolmen with the Toledo Police Department says, "To see their first responders in a completely different light, they can get right down on the field. We shake hands with the fans and everything after an at bat"

$2 of every ticket sold this weekend will go to support Toledo police and Toledo Firefighter’s local 92 charities. If ordering online use the promo code "TPD" or "TFD".
