The Schenectady firefighters had a grand old time knocking balls out of the park and rounding the bases. It was 1953 and the firefighters had put together a game to raise money for cerebral palsy. Both the fire and police teams were competing at the Schenectady Stadium, while 2,500 people watched the drama and comedy unfold.
Laughs were in abundance. People may have thought movie stars like Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell were on the field, but the truth was the "ladies" were actually dolled-up members of the Police Department.
