(BEDFORD) - Two rival teams raised more than $9,000 to fight cancer.

The Bedford North Lawrence Stars and Mitchell Bluejackets baseball teams "Coaches vs. Cancer Game" took to the field on May 6 to raise money for Relay for Life of Lawrence County.

Last year BNL raised $5,000.

Funds were raised this baseball season with banner sponsors, Pizza Hut proceeds, game gate fee, pass the bucket,
"dunk a coach", bake sales, and a Facebook auction of items.

Before the first pitch the team honored cancer survivors who attended the game.
