Chase Davis and Ronnie Sweeney Hit 18 HRs; Great Plains Division Wins NWL Home Run Challenge

By Adam Roberts – 7/20/2021

To kick off the All-Star festivities, each year the Northwoods League hosts its own version of the Home Run Derby, pitting members of each division against each other. The Loggers had two representatives competing for the Great Plains Division, and they showed up early and often!

Ronnie Sweeney hit 10 home runs on the night while Chase Davis tacked on 8 of his own as the Great Plains crew defeated the Great Lakes Division 69-67. Each player hit more homers in one night than they have hit throughout the regular season to this point (David has two and Sweeney has 4).

The official Northwoods League All-Star Game is tonight in Mankato, Minnesota.
