Leighton Vander Esch wins Dallas Cowboys Home Run Derby

Some Dallas Cowboys stars raised money for charity on the baseball diamond.

Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch won Tuesday night’s home run derby at Rider’s Stadium in Frisco.

Linebacker Micah Parsons bought a $500 bat just for the competition. Quarterback Dak Prescott said he was impressed with his teammate’s performance.

"Micah told me he had it in him. We obviously, we’re competitive. So, we make a little bet about it. And um, I was surprised. I definitely was surprised that he has that much power and consistency with it," Prescott said.
