CRISP CO., GA (WALB) - On Monday night, the Crisp Co. Cougars baseball team honored Sheriff Donnie Haralson, who lost his long battle with cancer last year and Crisp Co. Sheriff's Lieutenant Michael Sangster who died of cancer two years ago.
Current Sheriff Billy Hancock is grateful for the department's relationship with the team.
He said dealing with the loss of those two respected officers is still tough.
"It brings up a lot of emotions, said Hancock. "But, you swallow those emotions and you go through the ceremony and you honor two great people that have served this community."
Haralson's wife Peggy and Sangster's son Caleb helped throw out the first pitch.
Haralson served 37-years in law enforcement, 26 as the Crisp County Sheriff.
Sangster worked in law enforcement for 12-years.
