"The Polk County Sheriff’s Office and the Lakeland Police Department have a lot of respect for each other—but when it comes to softball, LPD’s team should be locked-up for impersonating ballplayers. The gates will open at 3:30 pm, with the first pitch at 3:45 pm. We anticipate getting LPD’s first out at 3:46 pm. You won't want to miss this epic battle." - Grady Judd, Sheriff
