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:

  • Group #1 (born in 2017+)
  • Group #2 (born in 2015 , 2016)
  • Group #3 (born in 2013 , 2014)
  • Group #4 (born in 2011 , 2012)
  • Group #5 (born in 2009 , 2010)
  • Group #6 (born 2000 - 2008)
  • Group #7 (born before 2000)

NOTE: Official bats and balls will be supplied by ESLL for use in the competition

$10 - Make Your Bat GOATED:

  • For an additional $10, you will get your own brand new official wiffle ball bat and can customize it for use in the tournament.
  • Please plan to arrive 20 min earlier to receive your bat and to have adequate time in the "War Room" to add war paint, body armor, and Drake swag to your bat to make it battle ready.

Official Rules:

  • The Pitcher (you may supply) must stand at least 12 feet away from the plate
  • You must use an official ESLL supplied bat
  • You have 2 min to hit as many HRs as you can
  • Top 5 HR hitters from groups #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 will move to Final Round
  • Final Round: 1 min to hit most HRs
  • Top Hitters in Groups #1 & #2 will be the winner (No Final Round)

Hitting Times:

  • You will choose your preferred window of time on either Saturday or Sunday
  • Saturday Times: 9pm - 5pm
  • Sunday Times: 9am - 5pm
  • Finals: Will take place on Sunday around 5pm (exact time is TBD)

Looking To Just Donate?

  • If you like to just donate and not hit, that's cool too. Feel free to purchase a ticket and check "Not Hitting" in the age group selection. Thank you for your generosity!

Let's hit some Home Runs in honor of Drake" Warrior" Walker and raise money for DIPG and ESLL!

How To Setup Your Team In Team Manager App

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.
