Local professionals give back to their community at the annual Sawbones VS. Jawbones softball tournament presented by Cleveland Clinic Indian River. The doctors vs. lawyers rivalry continued for the 11th year at the newly renovated Holman Stadium at Jackie Robinson Training Complex, raising nearly $8,000.  

“It's a tremendous contribution to United Way and our community that all the physicians and attorneys do this each year,” said Meredith Egan.
