(Prince George, VA) – 2nd Annual Guns ‘N’ Hoses Softball Game – Honorary Coaches
Once again, the Prince George County Police and Fire & EMS Department will meet for the 2nd Annual Guns ‘N’ Hoses Charity Softball Game on July 14th, from 6-9 pm, at Scott Park. We are pleased to announce this year’s honorary coaches, Eddie Frankenstein and Dickie Zuskin, who will throw out the first pitches.
(Ret.) Colonel Ed “Eddie” Frankenstein established his career in law enforcement as a Deputy Sheriff in the combined Prince George Sheriff/Police Department in 1985. He was promoted through the ranks to Patrol Sergeant in 1992. With the separation of the Prince George Sheriff’s Office and Police Department in 1995, he remained a Patrol Sergeant with the Police Department. In 1996, Colonel Frankenstein was promoted again to the rank of Lieutenant in the Patrol Division where he commanded all Patrol functions of the Department. In the year 2000, the Prince George County Board of Supervisors appointed Ed Frankenstein to the position of Chief of Police. On October 1, 2015, Colonel Frankenstein retired from the Prince George Police Department after 30 years of service.
“We, the men and women of the Prince George County Police Department, thank retired Chief Frankenstein for his many years of leadership and service, and we are honored to have him with us during this fun event!
Richard S. “Dickie” Zuskin is representing Fire & EMS in this year’s Guns “N” Hoses charity softball game. Dickie has served faithfully within the Disputanta Volunteer Fire Department, Company 2 for over 50 years, beginning service with County’s second volunteer company on February 19, 1966. The now “life member” firefighter was Association President for many years and has supported numerous projects and fundraising activities within the station. Dickie has worked with his fellow firefighters in putting together specifications for new fire apparatus over the years and also was involved in the planning for the current firehouse along County Drive. He also has served on the PG Emergency Crew Board of Trustees. We applaud his commitment to the department and his long-standing service to our community.
Remember - admission is free for the event; there will be a 50/50 raffle and raffle sales for additional prizes, concession sales and t-shirt sales.
