The sights and sounds of the 6th annual Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer® series emanated through Metro Bank Park in Harrisburg on Tuesday. Eighteen teams and three individual batters stepped up to the plate in hopes of knocking one out of the park for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition. Team Sporange was able to pull out the win with help from Matt Rau who hit two balls out of the park; Ben Moyer contributed with his own home run minutes later. Bryan Snyder was able to tie Rau and Moyer for the highest individual score thanks to the home run he blasted into left field.
