LANCASTER – It’s not every day that you see a little league team play against their local Law Enforcement officers.
Today was an amazing day, for both the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department officers and the boys from the West Lancaster Little League. The Lancaster Sheriff’s Department was recruited by the teams and Kelly and Ryan Mckenna worked out the details making the game happen! “Our games are modified,” said Team Mom Rosie Sigala De Vasquez. “We usually play 3 innings, but some of the deputies were on call so we only did 2 innings just in case they had to leave early.”
The game took place on the morning of Saturday, May 20, 2017, at 11:30 a.m. The Challenger Yankees, a special needs team, were the winners of the 2-inning game. The boys on the team have various special needs and are from 6 years to 18-years-old. “They were excited,” added Team Mom Rosie. “My son is one if the players with Autism and he was a bit scared at first, but we were able to make him safe around them and not feel so intimidated.”
The West Lancaster Little League said that the Lancaster Sheriff’s Department has been a continuous support throughout the season.
