Around-The-Horn Relay – Teams of 5 players (1 group per team)
Timed Event — Pitcher starts with the ball on the rubber – throws to catcher (must have foot on the plate), then to 3rd (foot on base), then to 2nd (foot on base), then to first (foot on base), then back to pitcher (must be on the mound). If the ball is dropped or overthrown, the fielder must possess the ball while touching the base before throwing to the next position. Each team will get 2 chances with the best time recorded. In the event of a tie, the tying teams will have one opportunity each and the fastest time will win.
Base Running Relay – Teams of 4 players (1 group per team)
Timed Event – All runners will start at home plate. Upon GO, runner must touch 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Home plate before the next runner may leave (starting from behind the plate). Players must touch every base – if a base is missed, a 3 second penalty will be added to the resulting time. Each team will get 1 chance to run. In the event of a tie, a run-off will be held between the 2 teams with one team starting on 1st base and the other team starting on 3rd base. This will be a head-to-head race where all bases must be touched or a player will need to go back and touch before advancing to the next base.
Home Run Derby – Individual Event (up to 2 players per team)
All balls will be coach-pitch. Batters will have the option not to swing at any ball. Every swing will result in either a Home run or an Out. A home run is any ball batted over the fence between the foul poles. An out is any other swing or batted ball that does not result in a Home Run. Each batter will get 5 outs. The batter with the most Home Runs wins. In the event of a tie, there will be a Swing Off consisting of 5 swings. If the score remains tied, the swing off will be repeated until a winner can be determined.
Majors will hit from approx. 170 feet from Center Field Fence (in front of pitcher’s mound). Minors will hit from approx. 145 feet from Center Field fence (just behind pitcher’s mound).
