TULSA - For the first time, inmates and the sheriff’s office faced-off in a charity softball game.
The teams met at ONEOK field in the inaugural game.
"It's part of inmate programming,” said Michelle Robinette with the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office. “I wanted to do it to help promote the kids of the dads that are in here... to bring them out and show them that dad can do good things while he's in jail."
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office won 16-0.
All proceeds will go to Tulsa’s United Way.
