July 25, 2013

Woodbridge, VA-The 2nd Annual Guns vs. Hoses Charity Softball Game at Pfitzner Stadium is set for Sunday, August 11th in which Prince William County Police officers will engage in a standoff with the Yorkshire Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department with local bragging rights on the line.

For the second consecutive summer, men and women of the PWC Police Department and a selected area fire department will square off to benefit a charity chosen by the respective softball squads.

This year, the Guns vs. Hoses showdown will take place from 4:00pm - 5:15pm before the Potomac Nationals contest vs. the Carolina Mudcats (Cleveland Indians) at 6:05pm on 8/11 at The Pfitz.

Gates to Pfitzner Stadium will open to the public at 4:00pm to watch the softball classic.

"Our hometown heroes do so much in our communities, and without the full recognition they deserve. The Potomac Nationals will celebrate all they have done to serve us with an annual day of fun and softball that honors both the police and fire departments along with all of their families," said Potomac Nationals Vice President/General Manager, Josh Olerud.

For each ticket to the P-Nats game sold by the PWC Police Department and the Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Department, the Potomac Nationals will donate $4 to the chosen charities for each softball team.

Representatives from the police and fire departments will have emergency vehicles displayed at the ballpark and activities for P-Nats fans to enjoy and participate in prior to the Potomac Nationals game.

All members of the PWC Police Department and the Yorkshire Fire Department will be recognized on the field before the game and in the middle of the 7th inning, a special rendition of God Bless America will honor the men and women who have lost their lives protecting their community.
