Wojahn To Compete In WCL Home Run Derby

The WCL All Star Break is here and that also means it is time for the home run derby. Each team in the WCL gets one representative from their team to compete. This year the Portland Pickles representative will be Connor Wojahn from Clark College. Wojahn sees the majority of his time this summer at 1st base and in the designated hitter role and is hitting .136 in WCL play, but in some non-league action is hitting .333 where he also has a home run and a handful of RBI’s. The participants will each get 10 outs. Any ball made contact with and that does not end up as a home run is considered an out. Batters will alternate between players representing the North Division and South Division. The players with the most home runs from each the North and South will advance to face each other in the final round.

The 2019 West Coast League All-Star Game Home Run Derby is set for Monday, July 22nd at Vince Genna Stadium in Bend, scheduled for 6:35 pm.
