“Signal Mountain Youth Baseball is a wonderful organization that strives to serve the community. Part of that servitude involves financial costs to run the league and make capital improvements to the facilities. This year’s Home Run Derby Fundraiser helped raise over $6,500 towards the league’s annual operating expenses. I cannot express how excited I am to share those numbers with everyone. The volunteers who made this event happen should all be commended for their efforts. It takes a team, and our team is one of the best I have ever worked with,” said league President Mark Wyatt.

In addition to the home run derby contests, the event held a mom’s softball game that was won on a walk off single in the bottom of the 7th inning. The game, which concluded the day, was the perfect finish to a wonderful event.
“Signal Mountain Youth Baseball is excited to continue with our regular season and get ready for postseason tournaments. The Home Run Derby is always a special day where our community can relax and enjoy the sport as a whole. I am looking forward to 2018’s Home Run Derby already,” Wyatt said.
