The O’Fallon Hoots, members of the Prospect League, announced that former MLB players Jim Edmonds and Rick Ankiel will take part in a Home Run Derby beginning at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 5 at CarShield Field. Tickets are on sale now.
“After the year that was 2020, we wanted to start off our summer with an event that got the community excited,” General Manager David Schmoll said. “Having two players of their caliber at CarShield Field will be a great way to kick off the 2021 baseball season.”
Fans also will have the opportunity to purchase limited specialty autograph passes to go on the field to meet and get autographs from Edmonds, Ankiel and two additional MLB Alumni to be announced at a later date. The autograph session will run for two hours beginning at 4:30 p.m.
