Come join us for our first home run derby. We will split competitors up by age and everyone will have a shot at hitting a "Home Run". We will be utilizing Field 3 for the Derby. The start time of the Derby is currently 11AM and will go until everyone has participated and we crown our champions.

4 - Each age group will get a specific number of pitches to hit the most home runs they can.
6U - 8U will get 8 swings (with 6U either coach pitch or off the tee)
9U - 12U will get 15 swings

One last thing I forgot to mention. The Derby starts at 11 but you take your swings when you sign up. The age groups won't hit all at once. We'll keep track of the HR's and contact the winners at the end of the event.
