Tonight, one of the most exciting parts of the All-Star Break occurs: the Home Run Derby! With a solid blend of rising stars and solid veterans, these 8 players are going to be putting on quite a show for you. This includes past Home Run Derby champions like Todd Frazier and Robinson Cano, as well as young breakout stars like Corey Seager and Adam Duvall, as well as San Diego Padre Wil Myers performing for his team’s crowd. And of course, Giancarlo Stanton looks to somehow hit even longer home runs than he does in regular games.
This is going to be a particularly fun night. Now that the Home Run Derby is seeded, there are one-on-one home run battles, culminating in the last two batters standing. Who will they be? Will Stanton dominate like many are expecting? Will a former champion take the crown once again? Or will someone new and unexpected reign supreme as the Home Run Derby champion?
Here’s what you need to know.
