Marietta, Georgia

Rescheduled for June 29th in Marietta, Georgia, the brave men and women of six public safety teams, including last year’s participants - Marietta Fire, Marietta Police, Smyrna Police and Smyrna Fire, will face off in the 2nd annual Marietta Softball Classic.  The charity tournament event will be hosted by The 6-4-3 Foundation at Aviation Sports Complex in Marietta (455 Aviation Road, Marietta, GA 30060).  The 2014 Marietta Softball Classic is a fun, one day, tournament event benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project.  The wonderful vision of Wounded Warrior Project is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.  All proceeds and collected donations from the Marietta Softball Classic will be given to the Wounded Warrior Project.  All games will be played at Aviation Sports Complex.

The six participating teams will be competing for the winner’s share of the collected donations and serious bragging rights.  Last year the Marietta Fire Department claimed the 2013 tournament championship (and bragging rights) by beating the Marietta Police Department in the final game.  Even more exciting than the championship was the successful raising of $1,500 for worthy charities through the Marietta Softball Classic in 2013.  J.D. Hill, Assistant Chief with the Marietta Fire Department and co-organizer of the event, commented, “Last year’s tournament was a great example of how people can come together for a good cause. We look forward to another awesome tournament!”

There are two important ways that the community can support this exciting event.  First, corporations and individuals can donate financial support to this event and the benefitting charity by calling the 6-4-3 offices at 678.354.3199.  Second, the public is invited to attend the softball tournament and cheer on the officers and fire personnel from the great communities of Marietta and Smyrna.  “We are very excited about the camaraderie this event promotes between our public safety brothers and sisters and look forward to the future success of our efforts to support the Wounded Warrior Project,” stated Major Steve Kish with the Marietta Police Department and co-organizer of the event.

Whether through a financial donation or with your presence in the stands on June 29th, please consider supporting the 2014 Marietta Softball Classic to benefit Wounded Warrior Project.
