PHILLIES HR DERBY
THIS Saturday, May 6th – starts at 9 a.m. – REGISTER AT 8:45 a.m.
The Phillies HR Derby will be held at the American Legion Field for the girls and Romanoski Field for the boys - located at 35 E. Central Avenue, Telford, PA 18969
This event is open to all boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 12 who are registered in the SABL. Boys must be between ages of 7 and 12 by May 1st, 2017 and girls between ages of 7 and 12 by January 1st, 2017.
There are 3 age groups for both the boys and girls:
7-8 year olds
9-10 year olds
11-12 year olds
There is no specific time slots for the players. Players will arrive and the Phillies will pitch to each age group. Once the 7 and 8 year olds finish, the next group will hit and so on.
Each batter will receive 10 pitches from the Phillies staff via a pitching machine. Kids are awarded points for how far they can hit the ball - the hit does not have to be a Home Run. Points will be awarded on distance as 1 point, 2 points or 5 points (Home Run).
There will be a raffle for prizes at the end of each age group which includes PHILLIES TICKETS!!!!! Every player who attends has a chance to win these raffles. We have participated in this event for over 45 years and it's always a great time for the kids.
!!!!! THIS IS A FREE EVENT !!!!!
ALL PLAYERS WITHIN THESE AGE GROUPS ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE. TOP 3 FINISHERS PROGRESS TO A REGIONAL HR DERBY LATER IN THE SUMMER AND THE WINNERS OF THAT WILL COMPETE ON CITIZENS BANK PARK FIELD BEFORE A PHILLIES GAME LATER CLOSER TO FALL AS WELL!
COACHES - WE NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE COME OUT TO HELP SHAG BALLS OUT IN THE OUTFIELD. YOU'RE NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO CATCH THEM IN THE AIR - WE NEED TO ALLOW THEM TO HIT THE GROUND SO THAT THE HITS CAN BE SCORED PROPERLY. SO, YOU DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MAKING ERRORS IN FRONT OF YOUR PLAYERS!
