On Wednesday night, September 10, the Boro Park Shomrim faced off against the NYPD’s 66th Precinct at the fifth annual Greenfield Classic community softball game. Both teams played a great game and the score was close throughout the seven innings. At the end, the NYPD pulled through to victory and defeated the Shomrim players, 10—7.
Councilman Greenfield hosts this friendly end-of-summer event each year to say thanks for all the work the Shomrim and 66th Precinct do throughout the year to keep the community safe. The game takes place at the baseball field on 20th Avenue at 53rd and 54th Streets in Brooklyn. Complimentary hot dogs and snacks were available to all the neighbors that came out to cheer on their favorite team. Brooklyn NYPD Chief Owen Monaghan threw out the first pitch. Councilman Greenfield thanked him and Deputy Inspector Deddo for the outstanding cooperation with the community throughout the year.
“We had a lot of fun at this year’s annual Greenfield Classic. The Shomrim and NYPD played a great game and enjoyed having so many fans in the stands who came out to cheer them on,” said Councilman Greenfield. “My thanks to everyone who pitched in to make this year’s Classic possible.”
The NYPD leads the Shomrim in wins in the Classic series. This is the third game the 66th Precinct won. Next year, Shomrim hopes to tie the series with another win.
