This home-run derby style event allows participants to take 20 swings at home plate.

After batting, participants can take a turn at fielding and pose for a souvenir photo.

The team, individual man and individual woman with the most home runs and the most points (based on distance) will receive prizes.

The event is held annually by the American Heart Association and the Philadelphia Phillies in honor of Richie Ashburn, the former Hall of Fame Philadelphia Phillies player and broadcaster, who died of a heart attack in 1997.
