A total of 18 men competed in the Homerun Derby softball benefit. Players paid $10 each to participate. Each had to hit as many softballs over the fence, set at 270 feet, as possible in a one minute time period.
Bert Wilson, Jr. keeps his head tucked in as he hits the ball during the Home Run Derby. Mr. Wilson hit seven home runs in the first round and then hit nine out of 10 balls over the fence in the second round to claim first place.
