2020 Don't Blink

The most prominent display of minor league baseball players will be this weekend, January 4th, 2020. Just Don’t Blink in 3 days. On the Montague Beach foreshore, Nassau, The Bahamas.

Beyond Excitement will be the Charles Johnson Foundation Don’t Blink Home Run Derby in Paradise 2020. To begin with, here is the drafting of Team Isaacs and Team Fox.

Great show Guys. Thank you, Cable Bahamas and Rev TV. So the home run stage is set, are you guys excited, are you ready?

We want to thank former Marlins catcher Charles Johnson and his foundation, The Charles Johnson Foundation for joining Todd Isaacs Jr and Lucius Fox Jr to make this event a huge success.

The teams are drafted and set. So, we look forward to this weekend. However, two times Derby champion Bo Bichette will not be defending his overall championship this year; But will be in attendance to crown the new champion.

Hence, most of all, I am looking forward to the new players who are joining the derby this year. I got to watch Christian Koss hit the baseball a lot during the 2019 season. I followed the Grand Junction Rookies games.

Also, I am looking forward to the return of Nick Gordon, who missed last year’s derby. In 2018 Gordon was turning heads with his monster shot out into the ocean.

After the Team competition:

As a fan of Minor League Baseball, I’m not sure how to call the individual segment of 2020 derby. I have seen most of these players hit some impressive home runs during the season.

So you don’t miss this Saturday’s showdown on the beach from start to end, and if you blink, you may miss it.

Finally, the weekend gets started at 9 am on Friday, January 3rd, 2020, with PlayBall for Kids ages 4 to 18, Paradise Island Harbour Front that is overlooking the World Famous Nassau Harbour, where some of the world’s largest cruise ships are dock.

See You on Saturday!

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.
