Wednesday night, members of Vaughan Medical Center and residents with UAB Selma Family Medicine will take the softball field in a charitable event that will benefit SABRA Sanctuary.

The two staffs will take a break from the hustle and bustle of every day life to help a great cause. The game is at 6:30 p.m. at Bloch Park. Admission to the game is $3.

The game was originally scheduled to take place in April, but it was rained out.

“It is fabulous that they picked SABRA as the charity this year,” director of SABRA Sanctuary Nancy Travis said. “To get this money, we are very, very appreciative.”

SABRA Sanctuary serves clients of domestic violence and sexual abuse in Dallas, Perry and Wilcox counties.

Although the larger goal of the event is the charity, a lot of trash talking has taken place between the two sides.

“We have a lot to live up to, a lot of trash talking to fight back against with our play Wednesday,” UAB resident Dr. Shanker Unnikrishnan said in an interview with the Times-Journal back in April. “There’s been plenty of talking, we’ll have to see what happens on the field.”
