Recap Of 2008 CBL Home Run Derby

Found a detailed recap of the Continental Baseball League’s 2008 Home Run Derby from the local newspaper which covered that year’s event. It took place during the first week of July 2008 in McKinney Texas at Gabe Nesbitt Field (Ballfields at Craig Ranch). The Home Run Derby was the first night of a two-night event that week, and the second night was the (rain-shortened) 2008 CBL All-Star Game, which also was held at the same venue.

A link to the article and videos from the event (including HR Derby winner Nick Shay – Corpus Christi Beach Dawgs) can be found here:


The Continental Baseball League was an independent professional minor league baseball circuit in the Southwestern United States. It operated from 2007 through 2010.
