Police and fire fighters come together to raise money in annual Guns and Hoses softball game

SIDNEY, NE — First responders swung for the fences on Sunday during the annual Guns and Hoses charity softball game in Sidney on Sunday, June 27. 

In a game that featured police officers trying to eat donuts while playing defense, teams being forced to run backward around the bases and players switching sides, the Guns took home the trophy with a 23-16 win over the Hoses. 

The squads managed to raise money for the charity while providing a fun atmosphere in Legion Park. The game raised $610 which will be split between the Night of Hope and Sidney Park Project. 

After the game, Texas recording artist Justin Todd Herod performed a concert on the neighboring softball field.
