We raised more than $5,300 and ALL of the money raised by the event went to support the baseball team at Carver Vocational-Technical High School, a public high school located in West Baltimore (Sandtown).This fun afternoon included Whiffle ball games, a Home Run Derby, a raffle for a baseball signed by Cal Ripken, Jr., hotdogs, hamburgers and a bake sale.Kids, ages 8-15, signed up to participate in both the Tournament and the Home Run Derby.We will be hosting the 2nd annual RPBL Fall Classic Tournament and Home Run Derby again this season!
