The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition and the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers team up for a Homerun Derby statewide

EPHRATA, Pa., June 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Batter Up! It's time to break out your cleats and bat and head out to the ballpark! The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) and the Pennsylvania Association of Community Bankers have joined together to bring a Homerun Derby event to each of the 11 Minor League Baseball Stadiums across the state. These events, all taking place throughout the month of July 2008, will not only raise funds for the PBCC but will raise awareness in communities throughout the state.

Events will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in each of the following stadiums throughout Pennsylvania:

July 1 - York Revolution

July 2 - State College Spikes

July 8 - Reading Phillies

July 10 - Washington Wildthings

July 11 - Erie Seawolves

July 15 - Harrisburg Senators

July 18 - Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs

July 20 - Altoona Curve

July 22 - Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees

July 26 - Lancaster Barnstormers

Teams of four now have the opportunity to participate at the reduced "Friends of the PBCC" rate of $500 per team. Opportunities to participate are still available in each stadium! Each team receives hats, jerseys, commemorative baseballs, and a souvenir team photo. Points will be based on where the ball lands in terms of a hit to infield, hit to outfield, hit to the back wall, and homerun. Team winners will be recognized before the game in the stadium that evening with possible "first pitch" opportunities!
