Oct 12: “Battle in the Burbs” pits mayors/managers against fire/police chiefs for charity

It may be one of the riskiest ventures ever undertaken by suburban mayors.

Billed as the “Battle in the Burbs,” Southland mayors and village managers will take on fire and police chiefs in a game of 16-inch softball Saturday at Standard Bank Stadium, 14011 Kenton Ave., Crestwood.

This is the brainchild of Crestwood Mayor Lou “Deliver the News” Presta, and the goal is to raise money for the Special Olympics by charging adults $5 for tickets (children can attend free of charge).

The real question is how many mayors will survive such a game without major injury, with Presta noting, “We’re going to have the fire chiefs there, and hopefully they know how to administer CPR.”…Please click here to read Phil Kadner’s column in the Southtown Star.
