Richmond's Matt Dacey Selected For College Home Run Derby

Release: 06/30/2014
Send this article to a friend Print RSS

UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. – University of Richmond Spiders baseball player Matt Dacey has been selected to participate in the 5th Annual TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby at TD Ameritrade Park on July 3.

Dacey, along with seven other players from across the country will participate in the Home Run Derby that will air live on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. ET.  Last year, over 23,000 fans filled TD Ameritrade Park, the home of the NCAA College World Series.  Richmond assistant coach Matt Tyner will be throwing to Dacey in the competition.

“We couldn’t be more excited for Matt to participate in the College Home Run Derby,” Richmond head coach Tracy Woodson said. “Matt had a great season for us and has continued that this summer. It’s not only great for Matt to be participating, but also for the Spider Baseball program”

The College Home Run Derby includes three rounds of play: Round 1 featuring all contestants, Round 2 featuring the hitters with the top four scores after Round 1, and Round 3 featuring the top two sluggers after Round 2.

In each round, contestants will attempt to hit as many home runs as they can before logging 10 outs, or hits that do not result in a home run. Balls reaching the warning track will not count as an out, giving players another opportunity at bat.

Additionally, following the tenth and final out of each at bat, contestants will have an opportunity to hit a home run with the ‘Bonus Ball.’ If successful, the special ball will tack two additional home runs onto the contestant’s total score.

“When Coach Woodson called me and told me that I'd been selected I was speechless,” Dacey remarked. “Representing Richmond baseball on a national scale is going to be a huge honor and I'm incredibly humbled to be recognized as a participant in the TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby. I'm beyond excited for this opportunity and I can't wait to compete in Omaha.”

After transferring from the University of Michigan, Dacey made an immediate impact in the middle of Richmond’s order. The Wyckoff, N.J. native led the Atlantic 10 in home runs with 12 – five more than any other player.  Dacey also led the Spiders and ranked third in the league with 46 RBI.  On the year, Dacey hit .265 with eight doubles and a triple, scoring 37 runs.

Tickets for the 2014 TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby are $8 for children (ages 3-12), $12 for adults, or a ‘Family Four-Pack’ for $35, and go on sale Monday, April 28 at 10 a.m. CDT. Tickets may be purchased in-person from the CenturyLink Center arena box offices, by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, or online at Ticketmaster.com. Service fees will apply to those tickets purchased over the phone or online, but not to those purchased in-person.

More information, including participating players and other notable participants, will be released in the coming weeks. Follow the TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby on Facebook and Twitter for the latest event updates and information.
