Home Runs that Help-2012

Home Runs that Help is the community outreach initiative of the POWER SHOWCASE International High School Home Run Derby. Home Runs that Help has two components, partnering each Power SHOWCASE participant with a local baseball fan that is suffering from a life-threatening medical condition and raising money for the Boys and Girls Club.
Home Runs that Help partners each POWER SHOWCASE participant with a baseball fan from his local-area who is suffering from a life-threatening medical condition. This individual could be a schoolmate, neighbor, family member or a complete stranger. All of the home runs hit by the participant are dedicated to that special individual. The first home run ball hit by the POWER SHOWCASE participant is signed and labeled with the distance and later presented to the player’s partner. The player and fan meet and are photographed prior to the POWER SHOWCASE event. The player and participant’s photo will be shown on the Jumbotron at Mariner’s Stadium during the Player’s bat. In addition, our Announcer mentions interesting tidbits about the partner along with the player’s baseball stats.The fan will be able to watch the event live on the POWER SHOWCASE channel.
