The event will feature a raffle with prizes including tickets to the Tri-City Valley Cats, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Proctors Theater and the Sept. 8 match-up between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.

Tickets are $10 for entry into the derby and a free t-shirt; or $20 for entry into the derby, a t-shirt, dinner and raffle tickets.

Entries are due by Friday, May 31.
