Each player is given 10 outs per round, with no limit on the amount of home runs that can be hit. If a tie exists at the end of any round, 5 swings are given to each of the tied players. The 2 players with the most home runs at the end of the second round compete in a final round. The winner of the final round is declared the winner of the derby.

Description

Homerun Derby is a competition where players attempt to hit the most home runs. It is setup in a traditional playoff system where the players with the most home runs advance to the next round. The intricacies of the national pastime are cast aside in baseball's answer to the shootout. Individuals battle to go deep most often, as power and distance are pushed to the forefront. Anything but a home run is considered an out, with the player that goes yard the most declared the winner.

History

According to the Austin Hockey Association, the word "puck" derives from the Scots Gaelic puc or the Irish poc (to poke, punch or deliver a blow). "...The blow given by a hurler to the ball with his caman or hurley is always called a puck."[9]
