The game will feature the Alexandria Fire Department playing against Douglas County Law Enforcement officials.

There will also be games between innings on the field, including a ball toss, bat spin, base race, radar pitch machine, K-9 demonstration, a kids' fun house, Sparky the Fire Dog and there will also be concession specials.

Those who attend the softball game will get free admission to the Alexandria Beetles game starting at 7:05 p.m. Tickets to the charity ball game are $2, with proceeds going to the Alexandria Area Special Olympics and the Windmill Project.

This event is sponsored by the Alexandria Fire Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office and the Alexandria Beetles.
