The Reading Royals Ice Hockey Team in conjunction with the City of Reading PA Fire and Police Departments announce the "Battle of the Badges" ice hockey game on February 19, 2006. "Battle of the Badges" will pit the Fire Department vs the Police Department in a game that is sure to be one you wont want to miss.

The game is scheduled to be played prior to the regularly scheduled Reading Royal vs Trenton Titans hockey game. Starting time is 1:05 pm (Royals game will follow.)

This game will be played as a charity event to honor and establish the "Michael H. Wise Memorial Foundation". The goal of this foundation is to create a scholarship program for deserving students while honoring the late RPD officer who was killed in the line of duty in 2004.
