On our trip up to Erie, the temperature registered a whopping 102 degrees on Tuesday, July 6th. That definitely set us up for a warm day on Wednesday, July 7th as the derby crew rolled into Jerry Uht Park. The high temperatures did not stop batters and volunteers from supporting the 2nd stop of the 2010 Home Run Derby. Check out the scores of our Erie teams!
