Cubs fans will have a rare opportunity to take pitches from Kerry Wood, Derek Lee, Michael Barrett, and Ted Lilly at Wednesday’s Kerry Wood & Friends Battle of the Bats Charity Home Run Derby:
The event, a joint effort by the Wood Family Foundation and Cubs Charities, benefits Chicago’s underserved kids.
“Anytime the fans get a chance to get on Wrigley Field, it’s a dream come true for them, so it seemed like a no-brainer for us,” Wood said.
Teams or individuals can either bat or shag balls in the outfield, taking pitches from Wood and ex-teammates Derrek Lee, Michael Barrett and Ted Lilly. Afterward, participants are invited to have dinner and drinks at the park.”
