Home Run Derby

Friday, June 11, 2021

The Town of Summerville Parks & Recreation Department is hosting the Second Annual Home Run Derby for local seniors in the Summerville area. The event started in 2020 for students whose baseball seasons were cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Home Run Derby will take place Friday, June 11, 2021, at 6 p.m. at Gahagan Park: 515 W Boundary St. Summerville, SC 29485. The Derby will have local stars such as Duke baseball commit Tyler Christmas and Coker University baseball commit Aidan Bisbano, as well as 14 other stars from Ashley Ridge, Fort Dorchester, Pinewood, and Summerville High School, all battling it out to see who can hit the most home runs. In 2020, Tim Orvin (Assistant Manager Parks and Recreation) and Don Stanford (Athletic Coordinator) wanted to find a way to bring the community together and allow high school seniors to have one last chance to represent their schools, coaches, families, and community before they head off into the next chapters in their lives
