Softball for charity brings the Richland County and Lexington County sheriff’s departments together [Video]

The Lexington County Baseball Stadium featured the two sheriff’s departments meeting in a friendly game of softball to raise money for the USO of SC

It was a busy Saturday evening at the Lexington County Baseball Stadium where the Blowfish hosted the Catawba Valley Stars.

But prior to that contest, the field at the Lexington County Baseball Stadium was the site of a softball game between the Richland County Sheriff’s Department and the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department. Proceeds from the game benefitted the USO of South Carolina.

Even though the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department had home county advantage, Richland County would prove to be road warriors in a 5-0 victory.

The United Service Organization was created in 1941 to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform.
