The TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby includes three rounds of play - Round 1, featuring all contestants, Round 2, featuring the top four after Round 1, and Round 3, featuring the top two after Round 2. In each round, contestants will be challenged to hit as many home runs as they can before logging 10 “outs,” or hits that do not result in a home run. Balls reaching the warning track will not count as an “out,” giving players another opportunity at bat. Additionally, following the 10th and final out of each “at-bat,” contestants will have an opportunity to hit a home run with the “Bonus Ball.” If successful, the special ball will tack two additional home runs onto the contestant’s total score.
Tickets are $8 for children, $12 for adults, or $35 for a ‘Family Four-Pack’ and may be purchased in-person from the CenturyLink Center arena box offices, by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or online at CollegeHomeRunDerby.com. Handling fees will apply to those tickets purchased over the phone or online.
