Miracle League Home Run Derby raises money for player scholarships

The Miracle League of San Diego’s recent 6th annual Home Run Derby raised more than $20,000 for player scholarships. Joined by Major League Baseball heroes Trevor Hoffman, Mark Loretta and Mike Sweeney, players, buddies, parents, coaches and volunteers of all ages and abilities used the same Big Jack bats and balls the Miracle Leaguers use to test their batting prowess.

Local sponsors for this year’s Home Derby included the San Diego Padres, Wells Fargo Bank, CareFusion, Barney & Barney, Dowling & Yahnke Wealth Management, Samuel Scott Financial Group and the Kurtin Family.
