Kris Haycock, a 2004 Tehachapi High School graduate and Warrior athlete, earned a spot to play in a Home Run Derby with Jose Canseco by competing with approximately 50 other contestants prior to the derby. The Home Run Derby was held at Chuckchansi Park prior to a Fresno Grizzlies game on Aug. 12.
From that contest, Haycock tied for first place and won the chance with two other contestants to compete against Canseco.
While Haycock had several good hits to the wall, no one could beat Canseco's six home runs out of 10 hits.
Haycock now lives in Fresno with his wife Natalie. He is the son of Steve and Debbie Haycock of Tehachapi.
