We couldn’t have had more perfect weather on Friday, June 28th when the Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer® series made its second stop of the summer in Reading. FirstEnergy Stadium was full of energy as four teams and three individuals took the field with aspirations of going home with the highly sought-after pink bat. John Furlong was the derby’s highest-scoring individual batter. He amassed 850 points and 5 home runs. John and his uncle, Mark Furlong, took home first prize, with a score of 2,175! Greg Gunter also put a homer on the board, bringing the day’s total to 6.

Here’s a look at the standings:

Mark & John Furlong: 2,175

Wells Fargo: 1,035

Mogel, Speidel, Bobb & Kershner: 895

Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute: 835

Individual Batters:

Greg Gunter: 410

Brandon Miller: 325

Heather Miller: 135
