Our day was action-packed and had perfect weather! Our winning team, Three Guys & a Senior, found out about the derby the day before the event. They raised the $500 donation fee and came out to the Curve to take a swing against breast cancer! We are excited to see the community support from this team and the others in Altoona.
And a special thanks to Forever Broadcasting in Altoona & Johnstown for the help with promotion of the derby event. Without the outstanding radio assistance provided by Forever, we wouldn’t be able to hold events like these across the state! Thanks for your help and taking a swing against breast cancer!
A brief break in action as the derby took a break for the weekend. But stay tuned for highlights from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees derby soon! In the meantime, check out all of the photos from our day at the Altoona Curve!
