Members of the Stevens Point Fire Department’s softball team, the “Hoses” end of Guns & Hoses, practice at Lower Whiting Park on Thursday.
The charity softball game is scheduled for 1 PM on Saturday at Bukolt Park. There is no admission fee but donations will be accepted. The first 100 people through the gate will receive a free foam finger for the team of their choice.
This year’s Guns & Hoses game benefits the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which flies veterans from all conflicts to Washington, D.C. for a day of sight-seeing at the nation’s monuments and war memorials. Money raised during the game will also benefit the local emergency veterans fund, which assists local veterans with their home, food and clothing needs.
The department’s roster follows:
- Pitcher: Casey Bielen
- 1st: Ron Heibler
- 2nd: Jodi Baganz
- Shortstop: Tracy Aldrich
- 3rd: Trevor Howard
- Catcher: Ben Schultz
- Outfielders: Dennis Zvara, Tate Roselius, Dayton Budsberg, Drew Egan, Dustin Fleisner and Dan Congdon.
