As Cam McKellar of the Bad News Sunny Bears (from the BC Children's Hospital Foundation) chases a loose ball, BNS Bandit (one of Bank of Nova Scotia's teams) makes it safely to first base at the The 24th-annual Slo-Pitch in support of BC Children’s Hospital at Softball City on May 25.

About 1,000 players from 57 teams representing mining, retail/wholesale, real estate, financial, professional and other industries aimed to raise $400,000 for the hospital during the tree-day event.
