The Charger Baseball team will be swinging hard in the Fourth Annual Home Run Derby, presented by Process, Inc, in an effort to raise support for the team! The team aims to raise $14,000 for the Baseball Operating Fund through the Home Run Derby. As a fan of Charger Baseball, you already know how critical support from alumni, parents and friends is to its continued success.  Please consider helping the team complete its goal and support their annual operating budget! 

How does it work? The team has voted on the top 9 power hitters to participate in the competition. Each hitter drafts a team of 3 (non-hitters) to help them raise funds for their "team". Each hitter will participate in bracketed timed rounds of 1:30, per round. For every $25 raised, that hitting team can add an additional second to their hitting clock. 

This year we have added an alumni bracketWe have 9 alumni returning to compete against one another in their own bracket. They will each be raising funds of their own in order to add time to their hitting clock. 

Once the winner of the current team and alumni brackets are decided, they will face off against one another to determine the overall 2020 Home Run Derby champion! 

Each hitter's name is listed in the designation drop-down. If you are donating in honor of one of the hitters please select their name in the designation drop-down menu. If you prefer to support Charger Baseball in general, please select Men's Baseball. 

We hope you will also consider joining us, via Livestream, for the Derby on September 11, 2020 at 5 p.m. Watch live here:  

Please consider joining us for this fun event and growing annual tradition! Many thanks for your continued support. Go Chargers!
