Retirement home hosts Home Run Derby


In between episodes of Matlock (we kid, we kid), some folks in Silver Spring, Maryland managed to conduct a Home Run Derby through the Wii. In celebration of Barry Bonds' record-shattering home run and using the game (we assume) Wii Sports, residences of the Riderwood retirement community took 15 fastballs and did their best, swinging for the fences.

You know what else is cool? The competition even had a celebrity entrant, as 1940s' All-American Girls Baseball League participant Doris Terry took some pitches. Remember that movie A League of Their Own?

Oh, and there is still no crying in baseball.
