The weather was perfect as the Toronto Police Service (TPS) Men’s Baseball Team took their game on the road against two local high schools.

The TPS team made up of officers from various Divisions and Squads headed to the east end of the city to take on York Mills Collegiate and the next day Birchmount Collegiate.

Both high school teams were excited to get a chance to play an exhibition game against the cops who regularly patrol their neighbourhoods. The TPS team came out strong winning 13-1 against York Mills and 6-2 against Birchmount.

Everyone involved had a great time. Community Response Officers from 33 Division were among the fans in the stands at Bond Park, while ROGERS TV did a special on the game against Birchmount Collegiate at Heron Park beside 43 Division.

It was a great experience for both the students and the officers, as the students were able to see the officers in a different light. 

The TPS team has had numerous requests from highschools across the city who want to play the cops on the field. 

Stay tuned for more updates!
