Knoxville (WVLT) -- There was a clash of the shipping and packaging titans on Saturday afternoon in North Knoxville.

The event saw UPS and Federal Express workers squared off on an Inskip ball field to see which services employees are better at softball.

Tickets cost $5 with all the proceeds going to the United Way.

The players, who were hoping to raise around a $1000, said the choice of the charity was an easy one.

"It does a lot of great things for people," said Stephanie Hill from FedEx, "people that are under privileged, people that don't have insurance and people that are not employed. It's a very good cause and we are fortunate that we have jobs with insurance and benefits. We are looking forward to giving back to the community."

There were two games on Saturday, the first was co-ed and the second was men only.
