Friday the 13th will be the playing of the 16th annual Cops and Kids vs. the Steelers Basketball game in Carrick.
The game on Friday, April 13, sponsored by District Judge Richard King, assembles a team of kids who join with Pittsburgh police officers from Zone 3 to compete in a basketball game against current and former members of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Carrick High School gym.
Coach Tim Pail will lead the kid's team against the football stars.
At halftime, there will be autograph signings and photo opportunities with the Steeler players attending that night. Prizes will be drawn at the end of the third quarter including autographed footballs, tickets to Penguins games, tickets to Pirate baseball club seats and much more.
"This will be a great opportunity for the community to have a fun family event," said Judge King. "Come see the kids from the area in a positive role and meet your local police as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers and other guest stars."
Tickets are $7 for adults and children and will be available at the door on game day or from the Carrick Athletic Association until the game sells out. Doors open at 7 p.m., the game starts at 7:30 p.m.
Those attending are asked to use the gym entrance on Spokane Street.
