On Saturday, October 20th, Jason Aldean will put on his cleats when he joins the Spring Hill Police Department in the “Battle of the Badges” event.
And for those who didn’t know, Georiga-native Aldean’s dream growing up was to play on a major league baseball team. The all-district leadoff hitter in high school even received a few scholarships to play baseball in college but told Austin 360 that when the Atlanta Braves didn’t draft him he decided to pursue music full time.
The charity softball tournament is where the Spring Hill Police and Fire Departments and the Tennessee Highway Patrol will face off. Each team will play each other in round robin format to raise money for the families of the late Dickson County Sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Baker and Lawrenceburg Firefighter Jason Dickey, who were killed in the line of duty earlier this year.
Other activities to enjoy include a silent auction, activities for kids, as well as police cruisers, fire trucks, and the THP helicopter onsite for children and families to view.
Battle of the Badges Softball game takes place at Evans Park located at 563 Maury Hill Street, Spring Hill at 3 p. Admission is $10, kids under 12 receive free admission.
Jason Aldean recently celebrated his annual “Concert For The Cure” at Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville consummating more than $4.1 million for Susan G. Komen chapters across the country. Aldean is also the second Country act in history to score four consecutive chart-toppers on the all-genre Billboard 200 albums chart with his current GOLD certified album REARVIEW TOWN, which follows six previous LPs that achieved PLATINUM certification or better. Following his 21st career No. One and multi-week chart topper “Drowns the Whiskey” featuring Miranda Lambert, Aldean recently released his follow-up single to Country radio “Girl Like You,” serving as the third release from his record-breaking eighth studio album.
