On June 22, the Bowie Police Department will challenge the Special Olympics of Maryland All-Star Softball Team to a softball game at Prince George’s stadium.
The game will be the second annual softball competition between the two teams to raise awareness about and support for Special Olympics, said Bennie Henderson, a spokesman for the Bowie Police Department.
“We did it for the first time last year and it was an amazing event,” he said. “It was a close game. I think we won by one point. I’m looking forward to the competition.”
The event will also include police car displays and an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog, Henderson said.
The game will begin at 4:30 p.m. following the Bowie Baysox vs. Binghamton Mets game. Ticket cost is $10, which includes both games. For more information, contact Sgt. Henderson at 301-575-1824.
