Two metro fire departments got together Sunday to show their support for injured Omaha firefighter Tom Bartek.

The Papillion Fire Department and Omaha Fire Department got together for a softball game to raise money for Bartek, who was hurt while bull riding at the Sarpy County Fair. 

Organizers sold team t-shirts and concessions for Bartek. 

"It's super easy to stay positive when you have so many family and friends and co-workers, firefighters strangers, a lot of strangers, just so many people pulling for you and praying for you, it's been awesome," he said.
