Batter up

The Battle of the Badges softball game last Sunday in Jaycee Park in Westland saw the game trophy go the Westland Fire and Rescue team which won the Homerun Derby and the game with a score of 10-5, defeating the Westland Police Department players. The real winners were the young athletes of the Westland Youth Athletic Association(WYAA) baseball who received all the profits for the organization.
The event was organized by the Westland Police Community Partnership and Westland Fire & Rescue. Mayor Michael P. Londeau served as an umpire and threw out the ceremonial first pitch, City Councilwoman Melissa Sampey announced the game and Councilman DeLano Hornbuckle sold the afternoon 50/50 tickets.
