Local police departments hosts softball benefit


WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Local police and fire departments took a break from their line of duty to play ball.

The Marathon County softball tournament is tradition for many law enforcement and public service officials, but this year, they put a spin on the game.

Proceeds collected from the tournament go to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.

The organization flies war veterans to Washington D.C. to see memorials that stand in their honor.

Officers say they look forward to the game and community every year.

"I think the most exciting thing today is everybody getting together and having a good time," said Officer Hannah Becker, "and the proceeds going to a good cause."

Becker says she hopes a benefit ball game will become a new marathon county tradition.
