2019 Home Run Derby
As the season winds down we have one more exciting event for the boys and girls, which is our annual Phillies Home Run Derby. This year the local (ELL) competition will take place on Sunday, June 9 at 10 a.m. at our Ship Rd. baseball complex. Local winners have a chance to advance to Regionals, and Regional winners move on to the Finals at Citizens Bank Park in September. There are age groups for 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12-year-olds in both softball and baseball. Note that there are no bat restrictions for the Phillies Home Run Derby. Specific start times will be based on registration numbers but as a guideline, we will start with 7/8 boys (Ship 2) & 9/10 boys (Ship 1) at 10 a.m., and then follow with all girls age groups (Ship 2) and 11/12 boys (Ship 1) probably around 11 a.m.
NEW FOR 2019—T-BALL DIVISION: Since we were washed out for our Opening Day festivities we wanted to add something fun for the younger group so we're adding a 4—6 division. This will just be a local event (sorry, no trip to CBP but we’ll provide some prizes). The kids will get their names called, and get to take a few coach-pitch swings on the big field. Then we'll break them up for some relay races. Start time for this division is noon.
Additionally, there is a Challenger Division game scheduled for June 9 at 1 p.m. It would be great to have a big turnout to stay and cheer/support these special athletes.
So please join/participate in this fun ELL tradition by registering via the link below. There will also be a sign-up genius coming out for volunteers to assist with directing traffic, scorekeeping, dugout control, etc. We will manage the time slots such that volunteering won’t interfere with watching your child compete so please consider taking on one of these roles.
