OROVILLE, Calif. - The 28th annual Butte County DA Memorial Softball Tournament hit it out of the park in Oroville Saturday morning!
Saturday was the second day a handful of Butte County agencies competed at Nelson Park.
The teams included Gridley, Chico and Paradise police, four teams were from the county including the sheriff's office, the probation department, the DA's office and the public defender's consortium.
The profits from the tournament go into the Randy Jennings Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship fund was created to support Butte County residents who want to pursue a law enforcement career at Butte College Law Enforcement Academy.
"It’s pretty important to us all. I think it's important that the community also see these are folks that are more than capable of having fun and remembering their fallen comrades,” said Mike Ramsey, the Butte County District Attorney.
A portion of the profits also goes to the Larry Estes and William Hunter Memorial Funds.
Lieutenant Estes, Deputy Jennings, and Deputy Hunter were Butte County Deputy Sheriffs who were killed in the line of duty.
