David Denson, (Covina, CA) won perhaps the most dramatic POWER SHOWCASE Championship in our seven-year history, and he did it in record-breaking display at Marlins Park In Miami. 107 players from 10 countries participated in the largest and most prestigious POWER SHOWCASE event to date. Denson blasted 3 mammoth 500+(500/508/515) Home Runs in the prelims Saturday including a record-breaking 515 foot shot off the top right of video board above the upper deck in right-center! That alone sent shock-waves immediately via social media around the baseball world. And that only set the stage for a frenzied crowd and Twitter and Facebook-fest that followed in the Finals Sunday. The (amateur) World Record setting home run was measured by Greg Rybarzcyk, creator of the HitTracker.
