Greenwich will play home run derby on Saturday

FI-baseballGet ready for some “home run derby” this weekend.

To get people into the “swing of things” for the upcoming Greenwich Wiffle Ball Tournament, people will be able to step up to the plate on Saturday, June 29, in the Byram Park picnic area and take some swings to help benefit the United Way of Greenwich’s efforts to get a permanent wiffle ball field built in town. The picnic area is located behind the marina at Byram Beach, just off exit 2 on Interstate 95.

The home run derby will take place from noon to 2  and for $5 people can go up to the plate hacking. The goal is to hit as many home runs as possible before making 10 outs. People can get unlimited tries, though, if they wish. The event is open to people of all ages.

The winner of the home run derby will get half of the registration fees as a prize and the other half will go toward the upcoming tournament.

This year the sixth annual Greenwich Wiffle Ball Tournament will be held at the Greenwich Polo Grounds on Saturday, July 20. The tournament is open to all boys, girls, ladies, and gentlemen ages 12 years and up. The popular tournament has gotten a lot of participation in the past and this year it’s being billed as “256 players. 64 teams. 20 fields, 16 cash winners, 10 trophy winners, 1 day.”

Registration for the tournament is still open online at
