The Rizz Show came out on top in 2021, but The Fast Lane has retooled their lineup for the rematch.
O’FALLON, Mo. – The rematch of the year is set in stone as 105.7 The Point’s The Rizzuto Show looks to repeat as Home Run Derby Champions over 101 ESPN’s The Fast Lane at the 2nd Annual MLB Alumni Home Run Derby at CarShield Field on June 4, 2022. The stations join former St. Louis Cardinals standouts Rick Ankiel, Ray Lankford, Rafael Furcal and Daniel Descalso for the event.
“We’re excited to welcome back both stations for another battle in the shows’ on-going rivalry,” O’Fallon Hoots and CarShield Field General Manager David Schmoll said. “Last year was so much fun for everyone involved. We’ll see who comes out on top this summer in June!”
Last summer marked the first home run derby battle between The Fast Lane and The Rizzuto Show with The Rizz Show winning the inaugural matchup. This year’s battle features “Team Rizz” with Rizzuto, Tony Patrico, Jeff Burton, Moon and King Scott against “Team 101 ESPN” with Jaime Rivers, Anthony Stalter, Andrew Marsh, Brad Thompson and Remy from WIL 92.3.
While The Rizzuto Show and The Fast Lane compete in their slow pitch softball home run derby, the former Cardinals will go head-to-head with members of the CarShield Collegiate League in a derby of their own.
