The 53rd Annual Dutch Hoffman Memorial Lifeguard races are tonight in Wildwood and it will feature for the first time this summer, every Beach Patrol from Brigantine to Cape May Point will compete for bragging rights as the best Lifeguard Patrol in South Jersey.  Wildwood hosts the first of the “Big Three” races culminating with The South Jersey Lifeguard Championships.  This year's final racing competition is in Margate, whose Lifeguard Patrol was the winner of last year's Championship.  The drama has been building the last few weeks of localized competition and we expect the racing to be fierce in this year's 53rd annual Dutch Hoffman Memorial Lifeguard race. 

Whether you are on the beach in Wildwood tonight or can't make it out, we invite you to Tune in to 973 ESPN’s Live coverage from 6 pm to 8 pm as we broadcast Live from the beach in Wildwood NJ: Join me, Billy Schweim, along with Former Chief of the Longport Beach Patrol Dan Adams, and Former Lieutenant of the Ocean City Beach Patrol and current President of the Ocean City Beach Patrol Lifeguard Alumni Association Jack Brooks as we describe all the action of this year's Dutch Hoffman Memorial Lifeguard races. 

The 55-47 Phillies are in Pittsburgh to face the Pirates who have gone 11-19 in their last 30 games.  Despite a rollercoaster season, the Phillies are still in the thick of the National League Wild Card Playoff Race and need to start playing more consistent baseball to ensure they make it back to the playoffs.  The MLB Trade Deadline looms and the Phillies could use a right-handed bat to help the team's offensive inconsistencies.

The Eagles Training Camp started this week and every player on their roster is at the Nova Care Complex.  Being a healthy team is always a major factor heading into the NFL season and right now everyone looks to be trending in that direction.
