A home run contest Saturday at Municipal Stadium will do more than entertain those in attendance. It also will serve as a fundraiser to benefit a U.S. Marine Corps unit in Afghanistan, of which a local man is a member. Hub City Softball and the City of Hagerstown's recreation department have joined forces to create the Hub City Home Run Derby. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Admission is free, but a collection will be taken to benefit the members of 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, F Co. in Marjah, Afghanistan.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg hosted a derby of its own this weekend, but there weren't any jockeys, high-strung horses or speed records involved. The Chambersburg Noontime Lions Club registered 1,500 people for its 13th annual trout derby, which was held Saturday and Sunday. The turnout set a record, with 200 more people fishing in the Conococheague Creek than in a typical year. Proceeds totaling more than $20,000 will be used for various charitable opportunities in the community, according to John Nogle, the trout derby's chairman.

HANCOCK -- Just off Main Street, with a firehouse on one corner and a playground on another, a group of youngsters stood next to their hand-built cars and surveyed the course stretched out before them. It was pure Norman Rockwell. Then, it was all downhill. One by one, they slid behind the wheel, crouched low like bobsled racers and coasted down West High Street with the wind in their faces and spectators cheering them on. After 50 years, the Soap Box Derby had returned to Hancock.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Mine That Bird is headed to the Preakness. The trainer of the gelding who won the Kentucky Derby at 50-1 odds said his horse will run in the May 16 Preakness at Pimlico, the second leg of the Triple Crown. "I've never been to Baltimore, but it looks like I won't be able to say that in a few days," trainer Bennie Woolley Jr. said Monday. Woolley said the horse will remain at Churchill Downs in Louisville at least until May 12 before shipping to Baltimore.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- At times Sunday it was difficult to tell who was wetter -- the fish or the fishermen.

Soaked and sometimes shivering participants stepped inside periodically to see whether anyone had caught "the big one" or, really, any of the top 18 largest trout that promised cash payouts. The big fish board remained blank of names, a rare occurrence according to some of the two-day event's organizers.
