5th Annual 'A-Team'Memorial Tournament At Riis Park

The firefighters of Engine 257 Ladder 170 hosted the Fifth Annual "A-Team" Memorial 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament at Riis Park on Thursday, September 21, 2006, in honor of Lt. Joseph Cavalieri, FF Christopher Bopp and FF James Bohan from Ladder 170 who made the ultimate sacrifice on December 18, 1998. "Whenever Lt. Cavalieri worked he always said he had the 'A Team' working with him," said FF James Savarese. "So we thought it was a great way to honor our brothers." This year's tournament played host to over 50 teams from firehouses all over the five boroughs. The proceeds from the tournament go to the "A-Team" Memorial Fund, which helps a high school student with tuition.
