Jason Aldean dusted off his high school baseball glove to lend a helping hand to the Spring Hill Police Department as they took on the Spring Hill Fire Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol in charity softball games that raised funds for the families of two fallen first responders who lost their lives in the line of duty.
The Spring Hill Police Department and Fire Department and the Tennessee Highway Patrol held the Battle of the Badges charity softball tournament on Oct. 20 at Evans Park for the families of police officer Sgt. Daniel Baker (Dickson County Sheriff’s Office) and fireman Jason Dickey (Lawrenceburg Fire Department).
Sgt. Baker was shot and killed in the line of duty on May 30 after responding to a suspicious vehicle call. He left behind a wife and daughter.
Dickey was killed in the line of duty of Feb. 12 after a burning home collapsed while he was battling a blaze inside. He left behind a pregnant wife, two daughters and a son.
The charity tournament included a silent auction and fun activities for kids.
“I love helping people do things like this, raise money for great causes, and it’s something that I’ve been fortunate enough to get involved a lot over the years,” said Jason to Nashville’s Fox 17.
