Medford, Ore. -- This Thursday the Medford Rogues will face off against Top Speed Baseball while raising money for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.

The non-profit is based in Boise, Idaho and supports family members of fallen and injured wildland firefighters across the country.

The fundraiser is being put on by the U.S. Forest Service, opposition Brewing Company, the Medford Rogues, and other fire agencies. Half of the general ticket sales for the baseball game will go to the foundation. Tickets can be bought at Opposition Brewing Company for $8. The game is June 19th at 6:30 at Harry and David Fields. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle.

Last year agencies across the country raised $10,000 for the foundation.
