The Saving Second Base Tournament is an event to raise money for local breast cancer patients of all ages currently in need of help meeting day to day expenses. Every year we are honored to have a breast cancer survivor throw out the honorary 1ST pitch. The ROCcK Children's Choir sings our National Anthem, then everyone joins to say the Pledge of Allegiance . Every year the Austintown FOP #126 sponsors this event as a Home Run Sponsor.
