2013 College Home Run Derby Participants To Be Revealed Via Twitter

Participants in the 2013 TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby will be revealed via the event’s Twitter handle @CollegeHRDerby. Starting today, June 26, 2013, at least one of the competition’s eight participants will be announced each weekday through July 1.

The fourth annual event will feature college baseball’s top sluggers competing under the lights of TD Ameritrade Park Omaha at 7:30 p.m. CDT July 3 and will air nationally on ESPN at 7 p.m. CDT July 4. This year’s roster will include power hitters selected from a pool of eligible players that have ranked among the nation’s home run leaders during the 2013 college baseball season.

The TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby includes three rounds of play: Round 1 featuring all contestants, Round 2 featuring the top four after Round 1, and Round 3 featuring the top two after Round 2. In each round, contestants will be challenged to hit as many home runs as they can before logging 10 “out’s,” or hits that do not result in a home run. Balls reaching the warning track will not count as an “out,” giving players another opportunity at bat. Additionally, following the tenth and final out of each “at bat,” contestants will have an opportunity to hit a home run with the ‘Bonus Ball.’ If successful, the special ball will tack two additional home runs onto the contestant’s total score.

Tickets are $8 for children, $12 for adults, or $35 for a ‘Family Four-Pack’ and may be purchased in-person from the CenturyLink Center arena box offices, by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or online at www.collegehomerunderby.com. Handling fees will apply to those tickets purchased over the phone or online.
