Los Angeles: On Saturday, July 24, 2004, the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Baseball Team will host the 4th Annual LAPD Celebrity Baseball Swing-A-Thon.

The LAPD Baseball Celebrity Swing-A-Thon is an exciting, one of a kind baseball festival and fundraiser. Free to the public, the event brings together police officers, elected officials, celebrities, children and families to promote positive life choices, good health and physical fitness through America’s favorite past time, baseball.

The Swing-A-Thon will feature free baseball and football clinics, an autograph session, and a health fair presented by the Manny Mota International Foundation. Baseball legend Manny Mota and a host of starting Dodger players will be on hand to give instruction in batting, fielding, catching, throwing, and running bases. Former football greats Rod Martin, Charles White, and Anthony Davis will teach the football clinic and sign autographs. During Opening Ceremonies Rod Martin will be presented with the 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication to youth and continuous service to the Los Angeles community.

The event will also feature an entertaining and competitive baseball game between the LAPD "Centurions" and the baseball team from the New York City Police Department.

Officers from the LAPD SWAT Team, Mounted and K-9 Units, will showcase some of their tactical equipment and police vehicles dating back to 1929 will be on display. Other activities include free digital fingerprinting, a karaoke contest, interactive games, inflatable jumpers, community booths, music, giveaways, food, a celebrity home-run contest, and much, much more!

All proceeds and pledges for runs scored, stolen bases, home runs, or base hits recorded during the game will benefit the Annual Holiday Toy Giveaway in December. Last year, more than 2,500 underprivileged children from around the City received presents, food and warm holiday wishes from the LAPD Centurions Baseball Team.
