The 2nd annual Guns vs. Hoses softball game will be Saturday, July 6, at the Italy High school softball field. The event will feature a pre-game homerun derby, a friendly game between the Italy Police Department and the Italy Fire Department and then a fireworks show immediately afterwards.
The Italy P.D. were the victors in the inaugural game last season which left the Italy F.D. hot under the collar and looking forward to the rematch. This should be a good one!
