Alumni Batting Challenge Tomorrow
Back for the second straight year at Citizens Bank Park, 12:30 p.m. tomorrow.
Three, two-man teams will compete in the fun event, trying to pile up the most points. Hitting one of the park is a crowd-pleaser but making contact is the real name of the challenge. But, 10 home runs would produce a winner.
Each batter gets one warm-up swing and then 15 swings.
Foul balls count as a swing.
Points are awarded for fair balls, 1-3-5-10 (10 being a home run).
Individual totals are added to determine which team wins.
We’ve selected a pitcher and a hitter for each team: RHP Tyler Green and C Ozzie Virgil; LHP Mitch Williams and OF Milt Thompson; RHP Ricky Bottalico and RHP Ricky Jordan.
Don’t tell anyone but Williams and Thompson have been working out.
Ozzie vowed he was going deep. Should be fun to watch.
