2022 MWBL CHRISTMAS CLASSIC HOME RUN DERBY

Matanzas Cuba – 12/25/2022

Despite a very cold & windy day, the Mid-West Baseball League held its 19th Annual Christmas Classic again this year on a chilly afternoon in Matanzas Cuba today.   A 52-degree day with the winds blowing in at a crazy 27 MPH, was not the perfect setting for the Mid-West Baseball League annual event.  Street vendors were out in droves selling hats, T-Shirts, sunglasses, and anything they could make a buck on from Americans & other foreign tourists. Twelve MWBL players & families came together with masks on for a jolly old time of fun, very little sun, but yet some Home Runs.

2022 CHRISTMAS CLASSIC PARTICIPANTS ANNOUNCED

The 2022 Christmas Classic will be held on Christmas night – December 25th, 2022 (results posted on 12/26/22 @ or about Noon ET) in Matanzas, Cuba in the Stadium – Victoria de Girón.

How does the MWBL going to handle the Christmas Classic Home Run Derby?  This is an idea that came from a league (BUNT), that the Commissioner checks out from time to time.  Dave Snyderman one of the members produced the idea a few years ago and it has been refined somewhat as they went along.  The MWBL refined the idea a little more and adopted the concept for the Christmas Classic Home Run Derby.

Representing the American & National League teams they finished 2022 with, will be the following twelve (12), players.
Since 2017 – No Mid-West Baseball League Franchise will have more than one representative.
All representatives will be for the team they finished the 2022 MWBL Season with.
