The proceeds benefit the IMagINe for Youth Foundation which provides resources to kids to help them excel not only academically but athletically.
“You know, we’ve raised over 40,000 for this event — we’re able to give it back to the community of Buffalo,” Hyde said Sunday. “We have backpack drives, we have the Bills helping us put on the Thanksgiving event, Christmas event. We like to do a lot of stuff in Buffalo because that’s where we are at right now. All the money we raise for this is going back into the community.”
Josh Allen won the home run derby, besting Poyer 5-to-3.
