Richmond Red v Blue Game

September 11 has become a date that lives in remembrance and recognition. As memorials are held across the country, Richmond’s First Responders will recall the day in a special way and the hope is that members of the community will come and show their support.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 11, members from the Richmond Fire Department and the Richmond Police Department will square off in a charity softball match – the Richmond Red v Blue Game. It follows the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities event at the Carillon at 9 a.m.

Starting at 10 a.m., the field at the Henderson Sports Complex, 804 Forest Lawn Dr. (behind John Marshall High School), will be buzzing with excitement, music, games and prizes as the two teams assemble for the big match.

Guest umpires and a guest play-by-play announcer will be in attendance as the teams battle to win the Richmond Red v Blue Pennant – ready to hang proudly in the headquarters of the victor.

On this date of remembrance, the entire community shows their support for the bravest and the finest who serve our community every day. Spectators at the game are encouraged to wear red or blue in support of their favorite team!

The Fire Department will be accepting small donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association while the Police Department will be collecting for the Richmond Police Athletic League.

Prior to the match, Qdoba Mexican Grill will be sponsoring games for children of all ages and will be generously providing prizes.
