Home Run Derby
Friends of Geneva Baseball 2nd Annual HOMERUN DERBY FUNDRAISER! On ¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬Saturday April 26, 2014 Friends of Geneva Baseball will be sponsoring a Homerun Derby to raise funds for Geneva’s Baseball Program! Money raised during the fundraiser will be divided up amongst Geneva Little League and Geneva High School Baseball. The homerun Derby will be held at the little league top field, field 1. Anyone who would like to participate can enter; it will be $20 for 10 outs. The Homerun Derby will be an evening of fun! The event will start at 5pm, and the championship round will immediately follow the qualifying round. Rules Each participant is thrown pitches by a pitching machine. The hitter has the option of not swinging at a pitch. If they swing at a pitch and miss, or hit the pitch anywhere but in home run territory, it is considered an out. Each player hits until he receives 10 outs in each round. Individual totals will be recorded throughout the day, with the top 2 from each age group squaring off in a championship round. Should there be a tie in the first round or championship round, a Swing-Off takes place. In a Swing-Off, each tied player gets five swings to get as many home runs as possible. If after the 5 swings a tie still remains, players get one more swing to determine the winner. All players participate in the first round; the 2 highest totals from round one will move to the finals for their age group. If you have any questions, please call Darrell Carey at (631)766-2725, Jeff Pierce at (585)694-9606 or Chris Buisch at (315)759-9724.

Murder, Mayhem and Madness: 150 Years of Crime and Punishment in Western New York with Author Michael Keene
The author of Folklore and Legends of Rochester takes us on a journey into the past, investigating thirteen true stories of the dark side of local history. Drawing upon years of original research, often uncovering new clues, we learn of some of Western New York's most shocking crimes. Was Joseph Smith of Palmyra, the founder of the Mormon Church, murdered to prevent him from running for the presidency of the United States? What terrible event occurred in the village of Caledonia that led to a man being hanged twice? Who was Anna Schumacher and why did her mysterious murder in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery go unsolved-until now? Who was the Batavia woman who poisoned her entire family only to eventually be set free? What stories lie behind Rochester's first murder and the unusual execution of the killer? True crimes of passion, insanity, and greed are woven into these and other tales as we explore 150 years of Murder, Mayhem and Madness. Join us at the Phelps Community Memorial Library on Tuesday, April 29th at 7 pm, 8 Banta St., Phelps, NY 14532. (315) 548-3120
