HR Derby This Sat. 8/2

The 3rd Annual ITL Home Run Derby will take place this Saturday, August 2nd at Patton Park in Hamilton. The event will kick off promptly at 1pm following the Topsfield/Hamilton game scheduled for 10am. All current and former ITL players, Fans, and officials are encouraged to attend even if you don't plan to participate. The day is a lot of fun and designed to get everyone together in preparation for this year's playoffs (which begin Sunday!).

Participating players please be there no later than 12:45pm, and please don't forget to wear your game shirts. The entry fee this year will be $20 and the order of hitters will be determined by a drawing. So you will have to be there at the start so you won't miss your spot. The Derby itself will consist of 3 rounds, exact numbers of players advancing in rounds will be determined by how many participants compete. Each player will get 10 outs to hit as many HR's as they can. Any swing not resulting in a HR is considered an out. The field is open to all current ITL players and alumni of the league.

While not hitting, please be prepared to shag balls to help the day move quickly and smoothly. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Tom Jones @

See you Saturday!
