Friends of Geneva Baseball
2nd Annual HOMERUN DERBY FUNDRAISER!
On Saturday April 26, 2014 Friends of Geneva Baseball will be sponsoring a Homerun Derby to raise funds for Geneva’s Baseball Program! Money raised during the fundraiser will be divided up amongst Geneva Little League and Geneva High School Baseball. The homerun Derby will be held at the little league top field, field 1. Anyone who would like to participate can enter; it will be $20 for 10 outs. The Homerun Derby will be an evening of fun! The event will start at 5pm, and the championship round will immediately follow the qualifying round.
Each participant is thrown pitches by a pitching machine. The hitter has the option of not swinging at a pitch. If they swing at a pitch and miss, or hit the pitch anywhere but in home run territory, it is considered an out. Each player hits until he receives 10 outs in each round.
Individual totals will be recorded throughout the day, with the top 2 from each age group squaring off in a championship round. Should there be a tie in the first round or championship round, a Swing-Off takes place. In a Swing-Off, each tied player gets five swings to get as many home runs as possible. If after the 5 swings a tie still remains, players get one more swing to determine the winner. All players participate in the first round; the 2 highest totals from round one will move to the finals for their age group.
If you have any questions, please call Darrell Carey at (631)766-2725, Jeff Pierce at (585)694-9606 or Chris Buisch at (315)759-9724.
