These events include homerun derby, baserunning speed challenge, throwing accuracy, pitching accuracy, and around the horn (throwing around the bases for speed). The bonus finale includes softball pitchers versus baseball batters.

Senior Kelsey Vogel said, “I am excited we are doing the series this year because we couldn’t do it last year due to COVID-19. It’s a tradition within our programs.”

In 2020, this event took place and the varsity softball team won 3-2.
