LOCATION: Loeb Stadium
We are hosting a Major League Baseball Jr. Home Run Derby at Loeb Stadium on Saturday, June 17 beginning at 10:00. This is a fun, FREE event for baseball and softball players, to showcase their hitting skills, and potentially earn a spot at the National Finals, which take place during the 2023 MLB All-Star Week.
Winners from the MLB Jr Home Run Derby hosted by the Aviators will advance to the regional qualification round hosted by the Cincinnati Reds on June 20 at Great American Ballpark. The regional winners advance to the national finals at the MLB All-Star Game!
Players will be split into two age groups 12 & under and 14 & under. The cut off date for participation is the age of the participant as of July 20, 2023.
Each athlete will have 25 swings or 3 minutes to hit as many homeruns as possible, whichever comes first. There will be two (2) rounds where the top four (4) participants in each age group from the first-round advance to the final round.
