GFFR says GFPD has "a tall hill to climb" to win Guns and Hoses softball game

Posted: Updated:

Great Falls Fire Rescue is the reigning champ of the guns and hoses charity softball game, and this year they are looking to keep their winning streak going, but fire rescue says its still important to remember why we do this.

Obviously the charity part is very important to us, but more so the brother and sisterhood of firefighters and law enforcement. As much as we give each other a hard time in good nature we have each others backs, said Captain Doug Neil.

But for one day out of the year, they are rivals on the field. After hearing what GFPD said, they have a message for them come game time.


They have a tall hill to climb, whether it was hockey which we discontinued at their request because they couldnt beat us anymore, and at softball, Im surprised theyre still doing it because its been so long since they have beat us, said Neil.

Even though there is quite the rivalry, it
s a great atmosphere for the whole family.

It's a good-natured game. The little kids love policeman and fireman so the kids can come out and see us. We will make our way through the stands and we will get to talk with the children. Its a great cause, said Neil.

If you want to see the eighth annual Guns and Hoses game and help fund charities it’s this Sunday, August 12th after the 4 P.M. Voyagers game. Tickets are on sale now on the Voyagers website here is the link. https://www.milb.com/great-falls/tickets/promotions
