The Safe at Home Game is a great experience it brings inner city youth kids together to collaborate, with officers around our community. It is designed to build a connection with officers out of uniform and in. I learned all cops are not so bad, and partnerships are key.
I learned that APD men are just like us. They have been through some of the same things we are going through as most are retired baseball players. The APD men were well rounded, very outspoken and uplifting. They taught me a lot about my ability to play this game we love – baseball. They mentored me along the process. Some of the officers – I’ve been knowing for years – are so cool to hang around. I had fun practicing and fielding with the them. It was such a great experience. I want to have the Safe At Home Game ever year.
