Battle for Blood: Chattanooga Lookouts, Blood Assurance team up for competition
It was a battle for blood.
On Thursday, Blood Assurance and the Chattanooga Lookouts teamed up for a little competition.
They took on the Knoxville area's Medic Regional Blood Center and the Tennessee Smokies in a 1-day blood drive battle.
Donors received a ticket to a Lookouts game and a special baseball-themed blood donor shirt.
Blood Assurance says it's nice to have fun - and help people out at the same time.
"It truly is a fun way to say we need you to come out. Kids are on vacation. Please come out and help us save lives for your family and friends," said Jay Baumgardner with Blood Assurance.
Blood Assurance or Medic Regional will get a trophy depending on which center collected more blood today.
They play to announce the winner at a future Lookouts vs. Smokies game.
