HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J. — Hasbrouck Heights teachers and police officers will square off in the second annual "Books vs. Badges" charity volleyball game at Hasbrouck Heights High School on Friday, May 20.
The event will feature activities by 92.3 Amped Radio and an appearance by the mascot of the New Jersey Jackals minor league baseball team.
