The Mansfield Republican Town Commitee will again take to the softball field to not only take on local Democrats but raise a little money for their local food pantry.

The second annual "Duel on the Diamond," will see the Mansfield Republican and Democratic Town Committees put their differences aside for an afternoon of fun to benefit the Mansfield Food Pantry and a local veterans' group.

"We want to do something good for the community and have some fun at the same time," said Olivier Kozlowski, chairman of the Republican committee. The game will take place on Aug. 23 at 1 p.m. at the Qualters Middle School softball field (Mansfield). In the event of rain, the game will be pushed back to Aug. 24.

Last year Mansfield Republicans won and raised over $250 for the Mansfield Special Olympics.

State Rep. Jay Barrows, R-Mansfield, and State Committeewoman Danielle Fish of Mansfield will also take the field.
