The Charleston Men’s Baseball League will host a Home Run Challenge on Sunday at the Patriots Point Sports Complex. The event is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free to the public.
Players from the Men’s Baseball League will compete in a home-run derby style competition to raise funds and awareness for their chosen charities and causes. Those include “Swing for a Cure” which benefits MUSC Holling’s Cancer Center Sarcoma Research, MUSC Children’s Hospital, Children’s Brittle Bone Foundation, Camp Happy Days, Windwood Farms and the Charleston Miracle League.
The finale for the event will be held before a RiverDogs game this summer.
“We started putting this together last year, and had a vision for this event to be a chance for us to give back and raise awareness for some great charities that we are personally attached to,” organizer Adam Padget said. “The stories and people connected to these organizations are just tremendous and we look forward to growing this event and helping these charities and their missions for many years to come”.
