Drake "Warrior" Walker Home Run Derby Fundraiser
Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby Fundraiser - All Abilities Welcome!
Where: Brett Field (ES Rec Park)
When: Saturday, Feb 4th & Sunday, Feb 5th.
Why: Two years ago Drake passed away after a brave battle with DIPG, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. DIPG is a highly aggressive and difficult to treat pediatric brain tumor. There is no cure for DIPG and it often considered the worst type in existence.
The upcoming ESLL season would have been Drake's final year on Brett Field crushing home runs and we'd like to honor the impact he had on the community by doing the exact same thing: Crushing Home Runs!
A portion of your home run derby ticket cost (donation) goes directly fighting DIPG and finding a cure. The other part of your donation goes back to ESLL to improve the fields, provide scholarship funds, and replace worn out team equipment for the upcoming season.
Your ticket provides entrance into the Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby, where you will have 2 min to hit as many home runs. Prizes will be given to the winners in select age groups (#2 thru #6).
Home Runs Will Be Adjusted For Each Age Group:
NOTE: Official bats and balls will be supplied by ESLL for use in the competition
$10 - Make Your Bat GOATED:

The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
We're pleased to announce the new lineup:
Home Team needs to send the scores via email to: email@example.com
Team Manger (iOS Android) is the new app that replaces 'Game Changer". ESLL will be using this new version to score games and to manage team communication. Please see the attached on how to familiarize yourself with setting up your team.
The Team Parent is responsible for setting up your team and making sure all players' families are added. Additionally, for division AA-Majors, someone in attendance needs to be assigned to score every game with the app. Please familiarize yourself with the basics.
Note: Even if you're already a pro, please review at least step 1 to learn how to properly name your team. This will help ensure opponents can easily find your team and will save wasted time in having to manually enter every opposing team roster.
