MLB Junior HR Derby

MLB Junior Home Run Derby - Twinsburg Qualifier

Happy to report that TBL's application to be a host for one of MLB's local HR Derby competitions was approved! MLB's Junior Home Run Derby contest is a new initiative started under commissioner Rob Manfred to become more connected to youth baseball. The 12U and 14U winners of our competition will advance to a regional qualifier in June, from which the winners of that will participate in the finals at Nationals Park in Washington D.C., just before the start of the MLB Home Run Derby competition on Monday, July 16th.

Below are some additional details on the event ...

Saturday, May 19th – Liberty Park, Field #2

12U: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
14U: 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
12U Finals: 4:00 PM
14U Finals: 5:00 PM

Number of finalists to be determined by number of entrants and weather (most likely 4 – 8 per age division). Division is determined by players age on July 17, 2018 (the date of the Derby finals).

There is no cost to enter. Entrants need to bring proof of age and fill out the entry form here.

Players need to supply their own pitcher. Any TBL approved bat is allowed (does not need to be the new USA Bat standard). They can warm up in the batting cage prior. We will have balls in there they can use.

Hitters will get a 2 minute running clock. Pitchers cannot throw the next pitch until the previous pitch has landed (safety for shaggers).  Any ball that clears the fence on the fly counts. 12u fence – 170’, 14u – 200’.

Date: 05/19/2018 (Sat.)

Time: 9:00am - 6:00pm CDT

Location: Liberty Park - 9985 Liberty Rd, Twinsburg OH 44087
