Rice junior Michael Aquino has won the 2013 edition of College Home Run Derby at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb.
The Owls' junior designated hitter out-slugged seven of the top collegiate home run hitters from around the nation Wednesday night to claim the event title.
"Tonight was one of the most amazing nights I've ever had on a baseball diamond," Aquino said after the presentation of the first place trophy. "I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity and even more happy to get the Rice R back in Omaha this year."
Fans will have a chance to watch Aquino pull off his dramatic come-from-behind win. College Home Run Derby is scheduled for a tape-delayed broadcast by ESPN on Thursday night, July 4.
