Firefighters beat police 17-5 in annual charity softball game

Sep. 2—After a four-year slump, Frederick fire and rescue personnel beat the local police 17-5 in the annual Guns & Hoses charity softball game on Saturday.

Ticket sales from the game, which was hosted by the Frederick Keys at Harry Grove Stadium, benefited the Frederick Optimist Club.

According to the organization's website, the Frederick Optimist Club acts as a "friend of youth" by promoting "good government" and "respect for the law." Many of the club's activities, such as "Fish with a Cop" and "Shop with a Cop," focus on building relationships between local youth and law enforcement.
