What a perfect way to wrap up derby season 2012! 15 teams and 2 individual sluggers battled it out on the field for bragging rights and those coveted pink bats this past Saturday at the home of the Lancaster Barnstormers. After a rain-out earlier this month, our dedicated batters and volunteers showed their support yet again with an incredible turnout. In the end, “Guns of Roses Team 1″ from the Lancaster Police Department secured the top spot with 1,560 points. The group enters the derby each year to support their co-worker, Judy, a breast cancer survivor of two years. The day’s highest individual score went to Greg Gunter of Team UTI who smashed two homers over the Clipper Magazine Stadium fence and racked up 535 points!
Here is a complete look at this weekend’s standings:
Guns of Roses Team 1 – 1,560 Points (Lancaster winners!)
UTI Team 1 – 1,545 points (Greg Gunter with 2 home runs!)
Swinging for 2nd – 1,280 points
