Many thanks go to the players, fans, sponsors, CHaD buddies, and volunteers who helped us put together a memorable day for the 2016 CHaD Battle of the Badges Baseball Classic. On a near-perfect Sunday at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, Anthony DeRosa singled home Mike Roberson in the bottom of the ninth to push Team Fire to a thrilling 9-8 victory over Team Police. DeRosa's game-winner put an exclamation point on an afternoon that raised over $71,000 (and counting) for the programs and services at CHaD.
A total of 43 New Hampshire police officers and firefighters suited up to help us raise money for this year's contest. While Team Fire took home the trophy, Team Police was the top fundraiser with nearly $37,000 raised. Bradford Police's Ed Shaughnessy earned the title of lead individual fundraiser by generating over $4,000! All proceeds from the game will support the vital programs and services at CHaD.
With this year's fundraising, this game has raised over $320,000 for the kids and programs at CHaD! Thank you for your support!
