Brooklyn – Councilman David G. Greenfield is inviting the community to watch the 6th annual Greenfield Classic Softball Game this Tuesday, August 18th at 7:30pm. The Greenfield Classic is a friendly end of summer softball game between NYPD’s 66 Precinct and the Boro Park Shomrim. Community members are invited to come and bring their family and friends. Free snacks will be provided. The entrance to view the softball game is on 20th Avenue between 53rd and 54th Street.
“I know that many people look forward to this event all summer. I started this game six years ago to recognize the hard work that the NYPD and Shomrim do to protect our neighborhood. Please join me and your friends and neighbors as we cheer on our two favorite teams: the 66th Precinct and the Boro Park Shomrim,” said Greenfield.
Greenfield started this tradition his first year as Councilman in 2010. Last year, NYPD won against the Shormim 10 to 7. The NYPD leads the Shomrim in Classic series with three wins. This year, the Shomrim hope to tie the series with another win. The winner of the Greenfield Classic gets to keep a beautiful trophy throughout the year.
