Fundraising Softball Game Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Summer may be coming to an end but it's never too late to play a game of baseball, especially for charity.

So tomorrow, the cops will take on the firemen in The Major League Baseball Alumni Charity Softball Game.

Former Minnesota Twins players, including one from the '91 World Series team, will be participating in the event.

Proceeds from the game will benefit several different programs including: Minot Parks and Rec., Youth Baseball, Fraternal Order Police and the Fire Department.

The game begins at 2 pm tomorrow at Corbett Field.

If it rains, the game will be moved to Magic City Campus at the same time.

Police Officer, Jason Bambenek says the event is to help Minot move on from the flood, one of the reasons Corbett Field was chosen as the venue.

(Jason Bambenek, President, Fraternal Order Police) "Corbett Field just re-opened this year after the flood and we are trying to celebrate this area. There are a lot of houses coming down, obviously this area is coming back around. The zoo opened up earlier this year, and get people back in the area where Corbett Field is at and try to celebrate that everything is coming back in the city of Minot."

The Fraternal Order Police helps to take care of police officers who have been effected by health issues or many types of tragedies, such as flooding.
