The second annual Batting with the 8th District wiffle ball tournament took place Sunday at Liberty Bell Youth Organization, 3295 Red Lion Road.

The 8th Police District and 8th PDAC organized the event, which featured 23 teams from the community, music by officer Harry Taylor aka DJ Rockstar, the Star-Spangled Banner, a 50-50, T-shirt sales and a concession stand run by LBYO.

The top three teams received trophies and medals, courtesy of Spike’s Trophies. There was no cost to enter the tournament.

The tournament has grown, as there were 16 teams last year.

Capt. Nick DeBlasis, commander of the 8th district, thanked residents for their support all year long and 8th PDAC president Shannon Sperduto for helping to organize the event. He also thanked state Rep. Ed Neilson, City Councilman Mike Driscoll and state Sen. Jimmy Dillon for supporting the tournament.

Proceeds benefited 8th PDAC community events. ••
