Badges for Baseball
Badges for Baseball at the Madison Mallards game Monday, June 4, 2012
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen joined Madison baseball fans at the Madison Mallards game Monday, June 4, 2012, to throw out a ceremonial “first pitch” in support of the Wisconsin Badges for Baseball Program, a partnership through the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation. Through Badges for Baseball, children from the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County attended the game versus the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters.
Badges for Baseball is a juvenile crime prevention program created by The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice. It pairs police and kids together to play and learn. The program re-shapes the relationship between law enforcement and kids living in communities across the country.
