Tomorrow: Annual Greenfield Classic Free Softball Game Featuring NYPD vs. Shomrim


baseballBrooklyn – The fourth annual Greenfield Classic free softball game featuring members of the NYPD and Boro Park Shomrim will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, August 28 at the St. A’s Sports Complex, with opening ceremonies at 7 p.m. and the first pitch scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Councilman Greenfield invites all local residents and families to attend this great free event at the field on 20th Avenue between 53rd Street and 54th Street and enjoy complementary drinks and snacks. Last year, hundreds of residents were on hand to watch as Boro Park Shomrim edged the NYPD 10-9 with a late rally to take a 2-1 overall lead in the series. Prior to the start of this year’s game, the ceremonial first pitch will be thrown by NYPD Chief of Department Philip Banks III.

“Each year, this great event just gets better and better and is enjoyed by more and more residents, especially families and children. I know that the NYPD is eager to avenge last year’s tough loss to Boro Park Shomrim and even the series up. This promises to be a fun and exciting evening, so I urge everyone to join me and their neighbors tomorrow for this free annual event as we support the dedicated individuals who work so hard to keep our community safe day in and day out,” said Councilman Greenfield.

Councilman Greenfield hosts this much-anticipated family-friendly event each year to show the community’s appreciation for the members of the NYPD’s 66th Precinct and the volunteer Boro Park Shomrim members who work throughout the year to keep the neighborhood safe. No tickets or admission is required for entry and all are welcome to attend tomorrow’s game. In the case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for a later date.
