Pictured above: Blaise Davis, his father Andrew and the Philly Phanatic at the 2014 Wiffle Fall Classic
If you didn't hear the news yet, the Philly Phanatic will be returning to the Wiffle Fall Classic on September 17. In past years, he has done some crazy things to make us laugh, especially when he decides to interrupt your game with 2 outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the last inning.
We are so happy that this crazy character will be there to help show support for Blaise and bring a smile to our face, even after being eliminated. The Phanatic is scheduled to have fun with us between 2:00 and 3:00. So if you are unable to make it for the full day, come out and enjoy some time with us and him. Just don't forget your camera. While you are there, you can take part in our raffles and home run derby.
And speaking of Home Run Derby, which is open to everyone, we have added a special prize this year and hope that it will become a tradition of it's own. You may have seen some MLB & Minor league players that win a home run derby look like this:
Well, The Wiffle Fall Classic - Moonshot Bat Home Run Derby will have one thing in common with players you see above. Thanks to ProAM Belts, we will have our very own Championship Belt that will be passed down year to year to whoever is named Home Run King. The winner will also receive a trophy and some Moonshot swag. Bring your muscles, it's not going to be easy to win this year.
