MLB® Jr. Home Run Derby Competition Hosted By Ebensburg Student Activities Club Set For May

Posted April 13, 2022 at 12:47 pm

On Sunday, May 22nd, at Carrolltown American Legion Park, the Penn Highlands Community College Ebensburg Student Activity Club will host a free Major League Baseball® Jr. Home Run Derby™ Competition for area youth beginning at 12 PM. MLB Jr. Home Run Derby allows participants to swing for the fences in a fun and free competition that allows hitters the opportunity to advance through three levels of competition culminating at the 2022 All-Star Game in Los Angeles.

Boys and girls are divided into three age divisions: 12U, 14U, and 15 – Senior in High School. Participants in 12U and 14U will have the chance to advance to the Regional Level. The 15+ age division is not eligible to advance; however, prizes will be given to the winner of each age group.

All participants must pre-register online.

All participants must bring age verification (copy/picture of birth certificate or similar) to the competition. Additionally, the American Legion Park will be raising funds to benefit the mother of Maverick Baker and her future plans to honor her son by holding a basket raffle and 50/50. The concession stand will also be open.

For questions concerning the competition or to donate a basket, please contact Robert Sekerak, Local Coordinator and Penn Highlands Regional Center Director, at 814.471.0013 or rsekerak@pennhighlands.edu.
