Bridgeport Hospital physicians and staff were among the more than 700 participants in the 10th annual Bridgeport Hospital Home Run on Sunday, May 26, at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard. Not only was the turnout the largest for the event, it also raised over $20,000 to benefit the hospital’s Joel E. Smilow Heart Institute, a Home Run record.

Frequent participant Ryan O’Connell, MD, Vice President, Performance & Risk Management, finished seventh overall, improving on his 2012 ninth-place finish. Cardiologist Ram Gordon, MD, finished 18th. The day also included a 5K walk, a one-mile course and children’s fun run.
