County to hold All-Star Softball game Aug. 8

FLINT — The Berston Inner-City Softball League All-Stars will compete against the Genesee County Sheriff Department All-Stars on Aug. 8, at 4 p.m. at the Berston Field House Softball Field, 3300 N. Saginaw St. Flint.

Berston is thrilled to announce the fourth annual 2021 Softball All-Star Game. This is a family friendly event open to all.

There will be free hot dogs, ice cream and fun for the entire family!

Festivities will begin at 2 p.m. with the Jackson Park Youth Baseball League Tee-Ball All-Stars followed by the 10 and under All-Stars game.

Berston took the win in 2019 against the Sheriff’s Department and is looking to bring it home again this year.

The Sheriff Department All-Stars are feeling the pressure and plan to bring their “A” game! Genesee County Commissioner, Bryant W. Nolden said, “I think this is a great event for a community that has seen its share of difficulties.”

This event drew a large crowd from across the county 2019 and looks to do the same if not more, according to event organizers.

“We hope that having these types of activities will help to build better communication between law enforcement and our residents. It is a great collaboration,” said Nolden.

This event is being sponsored by the City of Flint, Friends of Berston, and Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson. — G.G.
