LYNN, Mass. -- The North Shore Navigators are proud to host the first-ever “Battle of the Badges” charity softball game featuring the City of Lynn’s Police and Fire Departments on Sunday, June 30.

First pitch is set for 2:30 p.m. and will begin a doubleheader of action at Fraser. Following the Battle of the Badges, the Navs will host the Martha’s Vineyard Sharks in a New England Collegiate Baseball League game at 5:05 p.m.

All proceeds from the event will benefit to-be-determined local charities.

“This is a great event for Lynn Police and Lynn Fire to renew their friendly rivalry,” Navigators General Manager Derek January said. “Historic Fraser Field is a great venue for everyone to watch and enjoy a sun and fun-filled game. Any time the Police and Fire Departments come together in the name of charity, you know it's going to be a fun and successful day.”

The event is being dubbed as Round II after the two departments played a successful charity hockey game in March, which Lynn Fire won 8-1.

The Navigators will return to historic Fraser Field and the NECBL for their 17th summer season in 2024, with first pitch set for Tuesday, June 4. Stay up to date on the latest Navs news by visiting nsnavs.com and following the team on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
