Home Run Derby Today

by Amy Moritz

Calling all would-be softball sluggers.

In between today's softball doubleheader between Canisius and Niagara at the Demske Sports Complex, the Griffs will host a Home Run Derby open to the public to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. For $5 you get three swings, whether you can crank the home runs or squib out a single.

The competition is expected to begin around 4:30 p.m. and finish around 5 p.m.

The first game of the MAAC doubleheader starts at 3 p.m. Canisius is 17-14 overall and 2-2 in conference play while Niagara is 4-24 overall and 1-5 in the MAAC.
