After exceeding their initial goal of raising $500 for the derby, these guys upped the ante and are now working toward a $2,000 goal! Register now and make a page for your team – or yourself!

Team and individual batter sign ups are open, so register today! Your registration will get you signed up for a day of fun at a ballpark of your choice. Your registration fee covers a batter’s jersey, program, souvenir team photo, gift bag and an experience you won’t soon forget to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

There are also many great sponsorship opportunities available to meet any budget. If you want to find out more on how your business can be involved as a sponsor, check out these available opportunities.

The PBCC is also in need of volunteers to help out each day of the derby. If you want to help, please complete the online form.
