Jose Canseco falls in Home Run Challenge

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Slugger Jose Canseco came up short Friday night at Whitaker Bank Ball Park in what was billed as the Jose Canseco Home Run Challenge.

The celebrities won 20-15, with Canseco and Buchanan each hitting 15 home runs. Milam, a former Morehead State player, hit three over the fence and Harris hit one.

Lexington is part of a 17-city tour, during which Canseco hopes to set a world record for the longest home run.
