Home run derby returning to Sovereign Bank Stadium
Just a year removed from playing host to the 2011 Atlantic League All-Star game and home run derby, Sovereign Bank Stadium is set to hold another derby this week.
No, it won’t include any pro ballplayers. (OK, throw me under the bus for a misleading headline). Rather, the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition’s 5th annual Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer home run derby will be making a stop in York.
Sovereign Bank Stadium is one of eight locations the coalition will travel to in the state this July. Teams of four can enter the competition and will be given 15 swings to knock the ball out of the park. Teams make a $500 donation to the coalition to participate. Individuals without a team can enter for $125.
The event at Sovereign Bank Stadium will take place this Thursday. For more on the event, check out the full story from York Dispatch health reporter Chelsea Shank.
