“Home Runs for Heart”
The two-day home run derby was born out of the sudden death of Hall of Fame outfielder and broadcaster Richie Ashburn.
Rain forced the event inside, but members of the local news and entertainment media took their swings today at Citizens Bank Park for the annual “Home Runs for Heart” fundraiser.
The 16th annual “Richie Ashburn Home Runs for Heart” event gives you the opportunity to stand at home plate and swing for the fences.
It’s the 15th annual “Richie Ashburn Home Runs for Heart,” where, for a $400 donation, you can step up to the plate at Citizens Bank Park and swing away.
