2016 PGCBL Home Run Derby Rules & Timing
Rules: One contestant from each of the PGCBL teams has been selected by their organization to compete in the 2016 PGCBL Home Run Derby. All competitors will use aluminum bats provided by the Albany Dutchmen. Players will compete in timed rounds to see how many home runs they can hit in 2:30. Each home run hit during the first 2:00 of the round will count as one (1) point. Each home run hit during the final :30 of the round will count as two (2) points. Any batted ball prior to time expiring will count towards point total. The top three (3) point scorers in Round 1 will advance to the Finals. Round 1 tie breaker: Most overall total home runs hit during entire 2:30 round. Second tie breaker: fastest time recorded to hit first home run during the round.
