Brooklyn, NY – Call it matzo ball.
A team from the Hatzolah Jewish volunteer ambulance corps took on NYPD officers in a charity softball game at KeySpan Park in Brooklyn yesterday.
The Hatzolah and NYPD Highway 2 squads met to raise funds for Officer Scot Abrams, a highway cop who has been in a wheelchair since a motorcycle crash last year.
Hatzolah manager Moishe Wulliger said his team came out because they work closely with the cops.
“We usually meet only during tough [emergency] calls,” he said. “So it’s nice to come here and just play a game.”
“Highway 2’s going to win,” Abrams told the crowd before the game.
He then cheered his team on to a 6-5 victory.
“We’ll get ‘em next year,” vowed Hatzolah’s Raphael Treitel. [Patrick Gallahue, NY Post.]
