MLB Jr. Home Run Derby
Date(s) - May 22, 2022
12:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Ebensburg Student Activities Club is hosting a free Major League Baseball® Jr. Home Run Derby™ competition for area youth.
Major League Baseball® 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.
Plan to bring age verification (copy/picture of birth certificate or similar) to the competition.
In conjunction with the competition, 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, Regional Center Director.
