The San Diego Padres, in conjunction with CIF San Diego Section, are excited to announce another All-Star Game coming to America's #1 ballpark this summer. On June 5, the Padres will honor top local high school baseball players from the CIF San Diego Section at the 2nd Annual Padres High School Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, presented by FOX Sports San Diego. The event will feature a high school home run derby and all-star game following the conclusion of the Padres vs. Phillies game at 12:40 p.m. The game will feature an East vs. West format with the Home Run Derby beginning approximately 30 minutes after the final out of the Padres game.
The Home Run Derby will feature four players from both the East and West. The format will be as follows:
- All players will have 2 ½ minutes to score as many points as possible.
- Hitters will receive one point for a ball that hits the warning track and 3 points for a ball that clears the Petco Park wall.
- Umpires will be utilized to determine fair or foul and home runs, and will ensure that no new pitch is thrown until the ball hit previously has landed.
- The two hitters (from either East or West squad) with the most points in the First Round will have two minutes to score as many points as possible to determine the champion.
The nine-inning All-Star Game will take place immediately following the Home Run Derby and will include the top 48 players (24 per team) in San Diego County, as selected by the baseball coaches' advisory committee and select media.
