Home Run Derby
Enter The '23 Spring Training Home Run Derby!
The OPTIONAL Home Run Derby is Thursday (2/23/23), Pre Registration (below) is REQUIRED and has an Entry Fee.
Here's how the Home Run Derby works: When you register below for the HR Derby, you'll choose a 60 minute qualifying "Session" to hit in.
We only have (1) field allocated for each sex, and limited time on each. Spaces are EXTREMELY limited to (22) participants/session. Registration is first come, first serve.
****Make sure your Qualifying Session time doesn't conflict with your Play-In Game time!****
All participants are required to show up at the START of their 60 minute session they registered for, or face possible disqualification.
The director will then split the registrants up into (2) groups: Group A and Group B. The first group will hit, while the other group shags balls.
Then the 2 groups will switch, to complete the session. This way we have people shagging balls (we wouldn't get very far without the balls coming back in).
