Minor league baseball all-stars swatting home runs that will eventually splash down into the Pacific Ocean … it’s true and it’s the Midway Classic Home Run Contest!

The Lake Elsinore Storm are hosting the top players from the California League and the Carolina League for the All-Star Game this Tuesday, but on Monday the leagues’ best power hitters are on display aboard the USS Midway aircraft carrier in the San Diego Bay.

The novelty of professional baseball players clubbing long balls off a historic military vessel was put into action by the Lake Elsinore Storm.

Inland_Sports reporter Erin Piccinati is covering the Midway Classic and will have more from the deck of the USS Midway!
