While grand slams add points to the board, batters of any experience are encouraged to swing for the fences to help the 140,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer in Pennsylvania. These events, all taking place throughout the month of July, will not only raise funds for the PBCC but also awareness in communities throughout the state.
Events will be held from about 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in each of the following stadiums throughout PA:
July 10th – Harrisburg Senators
July 12th – York Revolution
July 17th – Reading Phillies
July 19th – Erie SeaWolves
July 20th – Washington Wild Things
July 24th – Williamsport Crosscutters
July 25th – Altoona Curve
July 28th – Lancaster Barnstormers
Teams of four can now sign up at www.PAHomeRunDerby.org.
Opportunities to participate are available in each stadium with a team donation of $500. Each team will receive event batter jerseys, souvenir team photos and gift bags. Points are based on where the ball lands in terms of a hit to infield, hit to outfield, hit to the back wall and home run. Individuals may also Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer at each event for $125. A statewide single-batter winner will be named at the end of July.
The PBCC represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants.
