The Spokane Indians hosted their annual Diamond Club Social and Home Run Derby presented by Banner Bank at Avista Stadium on Wednesday, June 11, giving fans a first chance to see and meet the 2014 squad. 

In a level were home runs come at a premium, the four chosen Indians players--Luke Tendler, Doug Votolato, Jose Trevino and Fernando Vivili--did not disappoint the crowd, cranking out homers and even forcing two tie breakers.
