IBL Home Run Derby – 2019
Island Baseball League (IBL) will be hosting its first ever wood bat HR derby the weekend of Sept 7th and 8th at Berkley-Peckham Field.
This will be a fundraiser for Nolan Harrington. Nolan was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and autism when he was 3, he is currently battling severe cardiomyopathy and is in heart failure.
The HR derby is open to all who want to enter. We will have a 18-35 and 35+ age grouping. The fee to enter the derby will be $30 dollars per player. All proceeds will go to Nolan and his family to cover his medical expenses, his final zoo trip, and other expenses.
See Nolan’s story here. #NolansHope
