For the second year in a row, Winston-Salem Police Foundation Police Athletic League Tee Ball provided a field of dreams for local kids. Womble Bond Dickinson and Partner Chris Geis are proud to support this effort.

The Tee Ball league recently completed its 2023 season. Chris, who is one of the league’s founders, again served as Commissioner. One of the league’s main goals is to make organized summer sports affordable and accessible to all families. In addition, local law enforcement officers act as volunteer coaches—which helps to improve police-community relations.

The league is organized by the Winston-Salem Police Foundation, with cooperation from the Winston-Salem Police Department, the City of Winston-Salem Parks & Recreation Department and numerous community partners, including Womble Bond Dickinson. Games are held at Rupert Bell Park in east Winston-Salem.

The season concluded on July 27 with a pizza party and awards ceremony.
