OMAHA, Neb. — The NCAA Division I home run leader, Victor Roache, donned the Georgia Southern baseball uniform once more and reached the finals of the second annual TD Ameritrade College Home Run Derby.
The sophomore advanced through two elimination rounds to reach the finals against SoCon Freshman of the Year Daniel Aldrich from the College of Charleston, but he fell 4-2. The two combined for more than 50 home runs during the season and were the top two contestants in the derby.
Roache rallied after seven outs to hit back-to-back long balls before the final out of the event was recorded.
