Jimmy V Penn-Jersey Home Run Derby

A sunny day in July…….. at a championship venue……..for a great cause……… supported by a committed and passionate team……….it does not get any better than the inaugural Jimmy V Penn-Jersey Home Run Derby at Trenton Thunder Arm and Hammer Park on Sunday July 13, 2014.

The event drew participation from 40 of the best high school sluggers from Pennsylvania and New Jersey with Pennsylvania winning this first competition. Dominic Cuoci from Pennsylvania and JP Radvany and Dan Wondrack from New Jersey were the top point getters for their respective teams.

More importantly, this event was made very personal as each of the hitters was playing for a loved one or friend that has been affected by cancer this was recognized in the program and by the public address announcer throughout the event,

The participants and their families were then treated to an after party hosted by Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy that was held at Rho Waterfront Restaurant.

The Philadelphia Friends of V would like to recognize and thank Larry and his dedicated team for their willingness to do whatever needed to be done to ensure the event’s success.
