People from all around gathered for the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Home Run Derby and All Star game on July 12th. The hosting team, Somerset Patriots Baseball, did a wonderful job creating a unique atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
There was colonial characters inside and out of the stadium to entertain people, canons, music and even a first pitch from George Washington!
The Home Run Derby was played with three batters from the Freedom Division and three from the Liberty Division.
The batters were:
Sean Halton - Lancaster Barnstormers
Garrett Weber - Lancaster Barnstormers
Zach Wilson - Southern Maryland Blue Crabs
Angelo Sonco - Long Island Ducks
Michael Crouse - New Britain Bees
Conor Bierfeldt - New Britain Bees
After the first round, there was a two way tie with 8 home runs between Weber and Wilson. They completed in the championship round with Wilson taking home the top prize.
