Frontiersman - 07-16


ANCHORAGE — The Mat-Su Miners have the most coveted mid-season trophy in the Alaska Baseball League. With a mammoth display of power and poise, Justin Kirby took home the 2019 ABL Home Run Derby title on Sunday. Kirby mashed 13 home runs in the first round and flew his seventh home run over the fence to reclaim the title for the Miners. Although the Miners are more focused on the trophy given out at the end of the season, Kirby was happy to take the trophy home to Palmer for the fifth time since 2011.
