Cleveland is inviting residents to participate in the 32nd Annual "Night out Against Crime." Mayor Frank Jackson stresses Clevelanders come together as One Cleveland. "Night out Against Crime" events will occur in each of the city's four police districts with the main event taking place at League Park on 6601 Lexington Ave from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm on August 4. This year there will be an exhibition baseball game played at the historic League Park between Cleveland Police Officers and youth from the City of Cleveland's youth baseball league with support from the Cleveland Indians. The exhibition game is being played as a part of the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) support of Major League Baseball's "Play Ball" initiative. The month of August has been designated as "Play Ball Month" in cities nationwide. US Mayors are implementing the initiative in their respective city with the goal of strengthening bonds between families and communities with baseball through baseball-related activities.

LANCASTER, NH (RNN) - Two people died and at least 22 were injured after a circus tent collapsed during a storm Monday night, according to media reports. About 100 people were watching the circus performance at the Lancaster Fairgrounds, according to USA Today. The performance was scheduled by Walker International Events of Sarasota, FL. State police say it's not clear how many people were hurt, but at least 22 people were taken to nearby hospitals, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader. The number of injured may be higher than 22 because some took themselves to the hospital, said William Degnan, the state fire marshal. He described the dead as a "young girl" and a "young gentleman," and said further identification was not given pending notification of the next of kin. Degnan said of the tents: "You know, these are fairly substantial structures when they're - they're put up, and they haven't had any issues in the past." The area was under a severe thunderstorm watch when it happened. The Red Cross is assisting authorities in Lancaster following the incident.
