Rip Wooten Beats Justin in Media HR Derby

LYNCHBURG - Rip Wooten of WYYD won the 2013 Hillcats Media Home Run Derby.

He defeated ABC 13's four-time defending champion Justin Feldkamp and six other media members.

Since media members lack the skills of professional ball players, they only had to hit the ball out of the infield.

Assistant general manager Ronnie Roberts said the Hillcats may extend the "home run wall" with cones and tape into the outfield next season.
