Police outrun firefighters for title
Police “Bacon Boomers,” snuck by with a win over fire department “Too Hot to Handle” players during the home run derby.
The winners were determined by the last play of the game, with the “Bacon Boomers” executing a perfect relay throw from the outfield to throw out the potential game tying run at the plate that wasn't “Too Hot to Handle” to end the game 14-13.
Both departments brought emergency vehicles for the young visitors to enjoy and provided demonstrations from both the fire and police squads.
The organizers thanked the event sponsors including: Meijer, Todd Wenzel Buick GMC of Westland, North Brothers Ford, T's Tacos, Westland Professional Fire Fighters Union, Westland Police Officers Union, and the Westland LSA Union.
