And the 2022 winner is B. J Murray.

Don’t Blink 2023 is going to be very interesting this year. Over the last five years, we had some exciting finals featuring a hitter from the Bahamas. We always come up short year after year, thanks to players like Bo Bichette, Lewis Brinson, and M J Melendez. However, the 2022 Home Run Derby Crown finally stayed home. Thanks to Tennessee Smokies B J Murray.

Don’t Blink 2023. Seven years ago, two young Bahamian baseball players came to me with an idea and wanted my advice on using their talent to tie into The Bahamas, our beautiful waters, and the game of baseball. Six years later, we are having a press conference for the 6th Don’t Blink homerun Derby in Paradise, where The Bahamas will take on the world. I can’t believe how quickly this dream became a reality, and so many lives were impacted. I am so proud of the hard work and dedication these two young men have done to take The Bahamas to the world. Don’t blink—Home Run Derby in Paradise. 

So, with the Bahamas Celebrating 50 years of independence, the 2023 Home Run Derby in Paradise will be dubbed The Bahamas vs The World. (Go Bahamas). 

Bahamas vs. The World: 

Leading Team Bahamas will be Bertrum BJ Murray Jr., Sebastian Walcott, D’shawn Knowles, and Ryan Reckley. On the other hand, Team World is loaded with sluggers like Will Benson and James Wood (The Nationals’ #2 top prospect, Josh & Richard Palacios, to name a few. 

Introducing A New Event:

Don’t Blink 2023 Minority Baseball Prospects’ Future Showcase in Paradise.

Todd Isaacs Jr said we are looking forward to a very competitive derby this year and to seeing everyone on the Montague Foreshore that Saturday, bringing lots of energy. Isaacs went on to say that it would be a fun time. Besides, it is really good to see the hitters returning to the Bahamas again, having a good old time, and helping out in the community. However, the local kids will get to see some of their favorite players they watch on TV.

Jeffrey was born on April 29th, 1961, in Nassau, Bahamas to Rejoiner Ann Rolle and Jerome James Francis Etienne. Married to Andrea G. Rolle-Francis, they have two daughters; Janae Latoya Francis, a graduate of Allegany College of Maryland, and Jessica Lee Francis a graduate Potomac State College West Virginia University in Kyser West Virginia. Jeffrey was coaching the sport of baseball from 1980 at the age of 18 years old because he loved the sport as a kid. He started listening to the game over the radio out of Miami Florida in the late 60s and in the early 70s started playing the game locally in various local leagues right up to the premier senior league; a league where all of the current Bahamian minor leaguers played. In 1982, Jeffrey had an invite to a three day tryout with the New York Yankees in Hollywood Florida, which was an awesome experience that is lasting a life time memory for him. Jeffrey has been following the Bahamian baseball players in the minor leagues since 1999 with Angelo Burrows, but found greater interest with the signing of Antoan Richardson in 2005. He also writes a year end review on their play on his Facebook page, Baseball Bahamas, and he has a website with the same name. He has a great following and would love to expose the baseball players to a bigger worldwide audience. He has a good relationship with all the players because he personally coached most of them. His favorite MLB Team is the Detroit Tigers from 1969.
