"Crosstown Showdown" Marks End of Baseball Season in Mid-Michigan

Lansing Lugnuts left fielder Connor Panas holds the 1st place trophy next to 2nd place MSU Junior infielder Dan Durkin after the Home Run Derby prior to this year's "Crosstown Showdown."

The 10th annual Crosstown Showdown took place on Tuesday evening at Cooley Law School Stadium between the Lansing Lugnuts and the MSU baseball team. The meeting was a make-up due to poor weather back in the Spring. 

For the first time, this year's exhibition game featured a Home Run Derby that took place before the first pitch. WKAR's Al Martin talked with MSU Baseball Coach Jake Boss Jr. and Lansing Lugnuts Manager John Schneider about this year's showdown between the Spartans and Lugnuts.
