Chattanooga Police and Chattanooga Fire Departments to Play Softball Game to Benefit United Way 
Handcuffs vs. Hoses: The Battle between Chattanooga’s Finest is set for August 26 

The Chattanooga Police Department (CPD) and Chattanooga Fire Department (CFD) have always been known as the city’s finest, but Chattanooga will soon be able to determine just who gets all of the bragging rights. 

On Friday, August 26, at 11:30 a.m. the CPD and CFD will go head-to-head atLookouts Stadium for a one-of-a-kind “Businessman’s Special” softball game. This game will be the make up for the original game that was canceled due to bad weather back in June. 

The game, Handcuffs vs. Hoses: The Battle between Chattanooga’s Finest, will benefit United Way of Greater Chattanooga. Admission to the game will be school supplies for the organization’s “Stuff the Bus” campaign, or a suggested donation of $4 to benefit United Way services. 

“We are encouraging nonprofit organizations, their volunteers and the public to take a much deserved afternoon off and enjoy a great game, while benefitting United Way services in the area that continue to make a difference in our community,” Eva Dillard, president of United Way Chattanooga, said. 

Chief Randy Parker of the CFD said, “Our team has been dusting off our trophy shelf since June. We think it will fit quite nicely at the station.” 

Chattanooga Police Chief, Bobby Dodd, has other thoughts on the subject. “There isn’t a trophy for second place. We’re going to have the fire department handcuffed within a couple of innings,” he said. 

Superintendant and former UT pitcher, Rick Smith will throw out the first pitch shortly after 11:30 a.m.
