Ridgefield police and firefighters responded in full force, smashing homers and snagging flies, in a charity softball game to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research.
Members donned customized T-shirts that were sold to boost the fundraising effort.
The fire department and PBA Local 330 teamed up with the Ridgefield Athletic Organization to donate more than $2,750 to the Hackensack Meridian Health Theurer Cancer Center.
The borough's bravest brought the heat, but Ridgefield's finest outscored the smoke eaters, 11-8, in the game hosted by the Community Policing Unit.
“All those who attended had a great time watching their first responders battle it out to support a noble cause," Community Policing Officer Ali Huda said.
