Doylestown Township Parks & Recreation

Home Run Derby

Boys and Girls, take your best swing. The competition is divided into three age levels; 7/8 years old, 9/10 years old and 11/12 years old for both baseball and softball. Batters receive one practice swing and 10 competition swings. Balls are pitched by a pitching machine. Batters do not have to swing at every pitch. Batters are awarded points for each swing and the distance of each hit. Distances differ according to age group. First, second and third place winners in each category (baseball and softball) receive a Phillies plaque. Winners will be invited to a regional final. Regional winners compete for the “title” at Citizens Bank Park.
