Henrico Firefighters are giving back to kids in the Highland Springs community with baseball. They hosted a clinic over the weekend as part of a new partnership to support the community they live in. The firefighters stepped up to bat to teach new techniques to kids in the Highland Springs Little League. William Boger, the President of Henrico Professional Firefighters’ Association and firefighter of over 18 years in the county, said he just wants to give back. “These volunteers [with Highland Springs Little League] here are doing such a phenomenal job getting this out in the community and trying to draw interest,” Boger said. “They have had the largest registration they’ve ever had “ In this partnership, the firefighters have also donated equipment, sponsorships and scholarships to the program — which was re-established in 2019.
