Marietta, Georgia -
On Sunday, June 29th in Marietta, Georgia, the brave men and women of Marietta Fire, Marietta Police, Smyrna Police and Smyrna Fire squared off in the 2nd annual Marietta Softball Classic (MSC). The charity softball tournament, hosted by The 6-4-3 Foundation at Aviation Sports Complex in Marietta, benefitted the Wounded Warrior Project.
The day started with City of Marietta Mayor Steve "Thunder" Tumlin throwing out a strike for the ceremonial first pitch. After exciting round robin styled pool play, Marietta Fire and Smyrna Fire each won their semifinal games to advance to the championship game. The championship game was a tight contest that saw a tie ballgame in the sixth inning that eventually ended with a 9-8 final score in favor of Marietta Fire.
The 6-4-3 Foundation congratulates the Marietta Fire Department for claiming the 2014 tournament championship by edging the Smyrna Fire Department in the final game. The win is Marietta Fire's second title in as many years. The 6-4-3 Foundation also congratulates all participants who helped raise over $1,400 for the Wounded Warrior Project through the 2014 Marietta Softball Classic. The 6-4-3 Foundation wishes to recognize Assistant Chief J.D. Hill with Marietta Fire Department and Major Steve Kish with Marietta Police Department for their efforts in making the Marietta Softball Classic possible. In every way, the 2014 Marietta Softball Classic was a successful event and we look forward to growing the event in 2015!
