Local radio talents will take the field as part of MLB Alumni Home Run Derby
O’FALLON, Mo. – The rivalry between The Rizzuto Show and The Fast Lane will heat up once again after the O’Fallon Hoots invited the pair to participate in their MLB Alumni Home Run Derby on Saturday, June 5 at CarShield Field. The group of on-air talent from 105.7 The Point and 101.1 ESPN will join former St. Louis Cardinals Jim Edmonds, Rick Ankiel, Brandon Moss and Adam Kennedy for the event.
“The ballpark has had a relationship with The Rizzuto Show for years and we’re excited to continue that tradition,” O’Fallon Hoots and CarShield Field General Manager David Schmoll said. “When we started discussing what we could do together for 2021 and this idea was pitched, it was a no-brainer for both sides. We can’t wait to play host to another competition in this radio rivalry.”
While the former Cardinals will go head-to-head with members of the CarShield Collegiate League, The Rizzuto Show and The Fast Lane will compete in a slow pitch softball Home Run Derby throughout the night as well. A full schedule of the Derby will be available on ofallonhoots.com closer to the day of the event.
