POMEROY — A game of softball for a cause.

Over a recent weekend multiple teams of teenagers gathered at the Pomeroy ball fields to take part in a teen co-ed softball tournament with the proceeds going to benefit the Shop With a Cop program through the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office.

The two day tournament, which included a homerun derby, raised $1,200 for the program in which area children are given the opportunity to go shopping just before Christmas with officers from the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office.

“The kids had a great time,” said Sheriff Keith Wood of the first event.

The event was organized by Ken McUllough, Jerry Hawley and Bo and Rachel Willis.

Wood said that the organizers plan to make it a yearly event and have been talking about ideas for next year.

The tournament, along with the sheriff’s office “No Shave November” fundraiser and donation will go to fund the Shop With a Cop program for this year.
