Ben Klafczynski, a 2007 Highland graduate and the Beacon Journal Baseball Player of the Year, recently won the second annual SportsTime Ohio High School Home Run derby that took place at Jacobs Field in Cleveland.
Klafczynski, a Kent State recruit, defeated Ron Stout of Medina in the final round. Ray Klafczynski provided the pitching for his son, whom beat a field of 10 players.
Tallmadge's Jon Campriana and Archbishop Hoban's Connor Burns also participated in the event. Stout, Campriana and Burns are seniors-to-be.
SportsTime Ohio will televise the contest at a date and time to be determined.
