BROOKLYN -

It's that time of year again. Two of the biggest rivals in the city are set to take a swing at each other as the FDNY and NYPD prepare to play ball at MCU Park.

Members of the FDNY and NYPD say they prepare all year for the event. This year, the NYPD is feeling the pressure since they lost last time. NYPD players say the FDNY team better be ready.

The FDNY says they are not worried, with one player saying the NYPD doesn't have a chance.

The NYPD is putting together a 'Sandlot' remix hype video to build the excitement between the two rivals.

The 19th annual Heroes Baseball Classic takes place 7 p.m. Friday. All of the money raised at the game goes to a good cause.
