First responders from around the state came together for a little friendly competition Sunday.
This ball game was the second annual "Guns and Hoses" match between law enforcement, firefighters and EMS and it was all for a good cause.
Money raised from admissions, raffles and auctions went to the Make-a-Wish foundation, and every dollar will stay in West Virginia.
The game gives everyone a chance to meet up for a good cause and a good time.
"Any time we can help a kid, you just can't put enough money on it,” Chris Gregory, of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office, said. “Everybody's here and we're having a good time. It's just a way for us all to come together and have a good day."
