BLK Home Run Derby


Homerun derby will take place prior to the TAB Challenge Cup Grand Final at 1:35pm or earlier depending on what time the earlier game finishes.

The event will take place on Diamond 1, Freeman Field.

As a precursor to the main event Paul Carter from the New Zealand Breakers will have an opportunity to take some balls deep.

Anyone under the age of 12 can go into the outfield and attempt catch a ball. Please note children will partake at their own risk. For safety reasons children will be restricted by cones to ensure they aren't too close to the infield.

5 x $50 BLK vouchers will be up for grabs for the first 5 balls that are caught inside or outside the diamond by a child under the age of 12.
