The Peabody Fire Department is hosting its second annual Jim Rice Memorial Softball Tournament in honor of fallen firefighter Jim Rice, who was killed in a three-alarm fire on Hancock Street in 2011.
The event will take place on Saturday August 10 at Marrs Park on Sutton Street in Peabody, with a $300 fee to participate. The event is open to employees from the city's fire and police departments, as well as those from local EMS.

There will be food and beverages for sale, as well as a Jim Rice softball jersey, and a can coozie. All proceeds from food and clothing will go towards Rice's family.
