Public Safety Fund to hold charity softball tourney.

Games part of Milton Roundup Oct. 23

MILTON, GA., Sept. 23, 2010 - Organizers today announced the non-profit Milton Public Safety Fund (MPSF) will hold a charity softball tournament Oct. 23 during the Milton Roundup at Birmingham United Methodist Church.

All funds from the tournament, which teams may enter for a registration fee of $250, will benefit the City of Milton Police and Fire departments. Teams are guaranteed two games, said Milton police officer Brian Kiel, who is organizing the event.

"Everyone is invited to take part in the tournament - co-ed, corporate, public safety, government, recreation or neighborhood teams," said Kiel. "We're hoping for a good mix of all."

Kiel said space is limited, so teams will be first-come, first-served. He said players will use a .47 core softball and play on a youth-sized field. As such, there will be a "no home run" rule. The tournament structure will be determined by the number of teams in the event. In addition, teams will be required to bring two balls to cut down on cost.

To sign up for the MPSF charity softball tournament, click here.

You may also sign up by visiting the City of Milton's Web site,, and clicking "Find a Form or Permit." The online application is under "Online Forms" and is titled "MPSF charity softball tournament application." The registration deadline is Oct. 15.

Please make all checks payable to the Milton Public Safety Fund. The organization's mailing address is 980 Birmingham Road, Suite 501-200 Milton, GA 30004.

You are the very reason we need law enforcement and a fire department. Better yet, why don't the first two posts move from our city.

Why does an event such as the softball tournament for charity garner such unnecessary posts?
Where has the kindness and concern for others vanished to by some people in our city? This is sad.

It's sad that in one of the richest communities in Georgia, the public servants must beg for funds. Speeding Ticket:$100 dollars; Gun: $400 dollars: Car $25,000. PROTECTING OUR FAMILIES PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!
