DANBURY, Conn. — The Danbury Police Department and the Danbury Fire Department met Friday night for a charity softball game to benefit the Thomas "Moose" Lynch Foundation.

Down 8-6 in the top of the ninth inning, the Danbury Fire Department rallied for 3 runs to take the lead. They held off the Danbury Police Department for a 9-8 win in the teams' annual charity softball game.

Ryan Howley homered for the police department while the fire department was led by Reed Boullianne, who pitched all nine innings, and "Home Plate Hines," who spanked three hits.

This year's game was different than previous years as the teams played to open the 1st Annual Thomas "Moose" Lynch Memorial Softball Tournament. Before the game, a ceremony was held to honor Lynch for his dedication to the softball community in Danbury by naming Field 2 after him.

The Thomas "Moose" Lynch Foundation helps to support the Lynch Family.
