For the most part, the rest of the teams have not been released as yet in addition to adding to the suspense. Send Todd and Lucius a message on Facebook on your dream team.

Why a Home Run Derby

For the most part, the Bahamas hosts some major sporting events. Like The Battle 4 Atlantis, The Bahamas Bowl, The World Relays and Tiger Woods The  Hero World Challenge to name a few. In the meantime, no Baseball Event. So together with Lucius Fox Jr, Todd Isaacs Jr came up with a home run derby on the Beach, in the Bahamas. A brilliant idea, Bahamas, Beaches, and Baseball, how Lovely.

Don’t Blink Home Run Derby in Paradise Kids Baseball Camp.

To begin with, most of the local baseball players haven’t had a chance to interact with professional baseball players growing up. Hence this weekend January 4th and 5th the kids will get to work without some of Major League Baseball top prospects at a baseball camp on 4th, and the following day at the Derby on the 5th.

Above all, this weekends Team Isaacs vs Team Fox Don’t Blink Home Run Derby in Paradise promises to be very energetic and exciting with some heavy hitter on the stage looking to dethrone the 2018 derby champion Bo Bichett of his title.

2018 Don’t Blink Home Run Derby Winner, Bo Bichett.

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.
