Rockland County, NY (February 9, 2022) – The New York Boulders announced today that they will again play host to the annual Never Forget Heroes Baseball Classic between the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the Fire Department of New York (FDNY).

This year’s edition of the Never Forget Heroes Baseball Classic will be played at Clover Stadium in Pomona on Saturday, Sept. 10. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. It is the third successive year that the rivalry has been renewed at the home of the Boulders.

The game between the NYPD and FDNY is held each year in memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice after responding to the World Trade Center area on Sept. 11, 2001.

Tickets, priced at $15, are on sale now and can be purchased by sliding to the Boulders’ website at Those purchasing tickets through the Boulders’ website will also have the opportunity to make a donation to the families of NYPD Detectives Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, who were killed in the line of duty on Jan. 21 in Harlem.

These donations will then be matched by the Boulders Community Fund and deposited into the Fund The First account set up for the families of the two slain officers.

“We are honored and privileged to host this game once again,” said Boulders’ President Shawn Reilly. “The Boulders’ organization is very supportive of the police and fire departments – as well as all first responders, and our ability to play host to this important event is just one way in which we can show our support to those individuals.”

All proceeds from ticket sales through Feb. 28 will also go to the Mora and Rivera families.

As in the past, the Widows and Children’s Fund and the Stephen Siller Foundation will also benefit from the game.

“The New York Finest are super excited to be back at Clover Stadium, attendance is growing every year and the Boulders are an extraordinary host,” said Jose Vasquez, President of the New York Finest Baseball Club. “We've decided to play the game closer to the anniversary of 9/11, which gives this game more meaning as we remember our fallen.”

He continued, “We are very touched by the support that the Boulders want to give to the Rivera and Mora families. We've had rough start to the year, losing two very young officer, both were energetic and full of life, who loved being police officers and working with the community to make a difference.”

Vasquez added, “The Boulders’ support gives us faith and hope that there are people and organizations who still appreciate the work we do.”
