JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The volunteer firefighting community in Jones County is hitting the softball field this weekend to help one of their own who needs a liver transplant.  

Firefighters are hosting a co-ed softball tournament Saturday to benefit longtime Sharon Community firefighter Cindy Shoemake. 

It will be held beginning at 8 a.m. at Laurel's Wooten Legion Sports Complex.

Shoemake has been a volunteer firefighter for nearly 20 years and was the first woman in Jones County to receive Level 2 firefighter certification. 

So far, 11 teams have registered to take part. 

The event will also feature food and a raffle.  T-shirts will also be sold. 

To learn more about the event, call Kelly Parker at 601-335-5132.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
