MSA donates tickets for first responders to attend Butler park baseball event

Saturday, June 29, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Safety equipment manufacturer MSA is honoring first responders by donating 237 tickets to the “Baseball, Bands and Boom” event July 4 at Pullman Park in Butler.

MSA's donation will enable first responders and their families to be admitted free to the Butler Blue Sox game, concert and the fireworks display that night, said Butler Fire Chief Nick Ban. The tickets are being distributed by the Butler County Fire Chief's Association, he said.

MSA donated one ticket for each year of the nation's independence, the company said in a statement. On July 4, the United States will celebrate 237 years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

“The fact that they're recognizing the first responders on the historic birthday is incredible and a very nice event,” Ban said.

MSA spokesman Mark Deasy said in a statement that the company was pleased to make the holiday special for first responders, with whom MSA has had a long-standing partnership.

MSA, headquartered in Cranberry, manufactures and distributes safety products for both fire and law enforcement personnel.
