(VIDEO & PHOTO LINKS AT END OF ARTICLE) As YWN has reported in the past, Flatbush Hatzolah plays baseball once a week in the summer months against various divisions of the NYPD, FDNY and local hospital doctors & staff.
Raphael Treitel, who serves as the liaison between Flatbush Hatzolah and the NYPD in Brooklyn South and helps organize these games, spoke with YWN about it.
He told us that for the past number of years, Flatbush Hatzolah has been playing weekly summer baseball games against various NYC agencies – such as NYPD and FDNY to foster a spirit of camaraderie and friendship. These ball games have successfully enhanced the unique relationship between the various agencies and Hatzoloh, and gives all a chance to “get out of the work uniform” and further enhance the important partnerships and understanding that the community can really count on. While always competitive, the games have been enjoyed by all.
Precinct commanders rave about the dividends paid off and Brooklyn South Boro Chief Fox himself places great importance on this ongoing successful community interaction.
On Tuesday evening, Flatbush Hatzolah played against the NYPD’s 70th Pct- and Hatzolah took the win with the score being 10-5.
