Charlie L. from the City of Erie TeamOn Friday, July 8th, the PBCC crew and the pink van traveled to the home of the Erie SeaWolves, Jerry Uht Park. Nestled in downtown Erie, the breeze from Lake Erie was present to cool off the staff, volunteers, and most importantly, the batters for the Home Run Derby. To top of the perfect weather, the staff at the Erie SeaWolves continues to shine. They were always willing to help and made the event a smashing one!

Check out our scoreboard for the day:

Home Run Hitter: Jeff JonesWe also were lucky to have two home runs at Jerry Uht! Brian King from TESCO & the Fette Family Team 1 and Jeff Jones from Icing on the Lake Team 1 both knocked the ball over the back fence! Congratulations!

Thank you to WICU and WJET for stopping by to highlight the event. Also a big thanks to all of our volunteers! We would not be able to have our events without you! Take a look at all of the photos from our day at Jerry Uht Park!

Winning Team: Landrum LumberjacksThe first Home Run Derby event of 2011 was a huge success on Wednesday, July 6th! Coca-Cola Park was the perfect setting for batters, volunteers, and spectators to show their support for the kick off event. Teams celebrated the chance to be on the same field that the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs use for every home game. Check out how our 2011 Lehigh Valley Home Run Derby teams did!

We also had a great showing of Single Batter support in the LV.
