Pittsburgh Firefighters Battle Baltimore In Charity Hockey Game For Fallen Firefighter's Family

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Pittsburgh firefighters took on their counterparts from Baltimore in a charity hockey game Saturday afternoon.

It was held at PPG Paints Arena.

All proceeds were donated to the family of Lee Weber.

He was a Pittsburgh firefighter who drowned in Lake Erie -- while on a family vacation last summer.

"It's wonderful we have all these people come out today," Ralph Sicuro, President Of Pittsburgh Firefighters Local Number 1, said. "We hope we're able to give it back to the community as well."

While Pittsburgh's firefighters won the game handily 12-2, it was really the family of Lee Weber that won today.
