     The South Carolina highway patrolmen got out of their cars and headed to the baseball diamonds yesterday for a good cause.

     Officers from seven state police companies across the state compete every year in a tournament to raise money for the Special Olympics.

     Corporal Bryan McDougald said they take the games seriously.

     "We come together to sometimes bleed, sometimes break bones, and always sweat to raise money for the athletes," McDougald said.

     All the profits from the tournament go towards the Special Olympics.

     "Every penny we raise goes to sending athletes and their families to games," said McDougald.  "They don't have to worry about gas money or hotel rooms and let their child get on the field and compete."

    South Carolina law enforcement agencies raised close to $500,000 for the Special Olympics last year.
