Reading's Battle of the Badges set for February 10

Published: 9:53 PM EST Jan 07, 2013

The Royals have once again teamed up with the Reading fire and police departments to host the eighth annual Battle of the Badges. The two groups will square off in a hockey game with the winner earning the FirstStates Cup and bragging rights.

The showdown has been set for February 10 at 12:30 on the Sovereign Center ice.

The Royals will follow it up with a game of their own against the Kalamazoo Wings. That puck drops at 4:05.

One ticket gives entry to both games that day. A portion of every ticket sold will benefit the Battle of the Badges Scholarship Fund.
