SLO firefighters planning memorial softball tournament

The San Luis Obispo Firefighters Association is hosting a memorial co-ed softball tournament in honor of San Luis Obispo Fire Chief John Callahan who died last year of a heart attack while playing on the city’s softball team during an evening game.

The funds raised by the softball tournament will be used to start a scholarship for a San Luis Obispo High School student in Callahan’s name.

The softball tournament will take place Saturday at El Chorro Regional Park from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Information regarding health awareness and fire prevention as well as food and entertainment will be available throughout the day.
