Heroes Fall Classic Baseball Fundraiser

When the annual CHaD Battle of the Badges Baseball game was canceled in June, disappointment was the initial reaction from the dedicated group of law enforcement and fire & rescue personnel who play in the game each year. The second reaction? “Let’s do our own game.”
Led by Team Police co-captain Steve Case, nearly 20 players on each team gathered at Nashua’s Holman Stadium Friday, September 11, to host the Heroes Fall Classic to support the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. This third-party Hearts in Action fundraiser saw the teams book the venue, coordinate practices, and print up tickets and programs. They also organized their own fundraising to help fill the gap left by the canceled Badges game.
On game day, masked fans entered Holman Stadium, excited to have a sporting event to watch after a spring and summer of cancellations. They were treated to a close game early on until Police broke through for a big inning midway through the game. The game ended in a 11-5 Police victory, continuing their winning streak to four games since Fire last won in 2016.
Overall, the players raised more than $14,000 with their fundraising efforts, bolstered by the continued support from Badges Team Police partner Brothers Before Others. Combined with Badges funds raised before the game was cancelled, more than $42,000 was raised for CHaD kids on the diamond this summer!
