Mark your calendars for the MLB Jr. Home Run Derby and USA Baseball Bat Demo set for Jan. 12, 2019

DICK's Sporting Goods and Rocklin Pony Baseball are proud to present the 2019 MLB Jr. Home Run Derby and USA Baseball Bat Demo at Whitney Park on Saturday, January 12th 2019 beginning at 12:30pm. This is a FREE event to the all participants (kids 14 and under).  Winners from this event will advance to one of eight (8) Regional Competitions. Regional Champions will advance and compete in the National Finals during 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Week in Cleveland, OH.

There will be two divisions for the Homerun Derby: 12-and-under and 14-and-under. The 12-and-under group will compete on a 170' fence on the field at Whitney Park, and the 14-and-under group will compete on a 200' fence.  We encourage online and advance registration.   As part of the FREE event, kids will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best local hitting and coaching instructors with stations set up all day for kids to try the new USA Baseball-approved bats ON THE FIELD at Whitney Park!

Coaches from Baseball Factory will man each on field hitting stations and provide expert advice and tips for the kids. This group brings years of professional playing and coaching experience to make sure every kid can get the help they need to become a better player.

The MLB Jr. Home Run Derby and USA Baseball Bat Demo is family-friendly and we encourage all kids to come participate and have fun at the event. Activities will be setup throughout the ballpark including free giveaways! We look forward to seeing you at the ballpark on Saturday, January 12th.
