Steelers will play basketball against local kids and cops


District Judge Richard King is again sponsoring a basketball game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and neighborhood kids with the Police of Zone 3 on Friday, April 7. The game will begin at 8 p.m. at Carrick High School gym.

This is the tenth year the kids and the Zone 3 police will play the Pittsburgh Steelers Basketball Team. Timmy Pail will coach the kid's team and Ryan Tumas will assist him.

There will be many prizes at the game that are drawn at the end of the 3rd quarter, autograph footballs, tickets to Penguins games, tickets to Pirate baseball in special club seats and much more. At halftime, there will be autograph signings and photo opportunities with the Steeler players that attend that night.

“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 Super Bowl Champion Steelers.”

There will be a limited amount of special T-shirts on sale. Pizza and pop will be sold during the game.

Tickets are $5 for adults and children. Due to the Super Bowl victory a large crowd is expected. Tickets will be on sale in advance on Thursdays, March 23 and March 30 at the Carrick Rec. Center from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door on game day only if the game does not sell out. Tickets are on sale through the Carrick Community Athletic Association.
