Call me crazy but I kinda dig having some more under the radars players in this year's derby. You can really appreciate the power that all different kinds of major leaguers have.

 

Obviously last year, Judge put on a show that we'll probably never see again. But I'm still having a pretty good time watching this.

It wouldve been cool if they had Mac Williamson... if he's still around... Remember him?

Lol I swear at least 2 of those HRs in the final minute landed at the same time. Thanks for the rigging 

 

They weren't even waiting for the ball to land when Harper was in the finals. A lot of his homers shouldn't even have counted per rules.

His pops pitching was pretty suspect though. He needed all the help he could get

One of the beat Derbies this man has seen.  Love the current format.  Grats to Harper and maybe he gets going in a positive direction hereon out.

Did anybody really watch that

Yeah. Most HRs hit in HR Derby history—221. It was actually great.

He was brushing him back and throwing way outside . . . looked like pops was choking under the pressure for a while.

Schwarber had the 2nd most homers all time with 55, Stanton the record holder at 61.

Judge would've had about 70 last year if he weren't forced to hit 2nd every time. Stat doesn't really work now given the format.

The new format has completely rejuvenated the Derby.  This one was FANTASTIC and the crowd made it even better.  The drama with Harper's dad throwing SO many bad pitches then Harper going on that run.  It was FUN!  

 

I'd LOVE to see a skills competition like Betts was talking about added.  Like a running the bases while fielding or throwing long balls to specific targets or something.

Anybody else think the Legends vs Celebrities softball game more entertaining then the home run derby ? 

 

Or am I alone

Dascha Polanco being the catcher for a bit certainly livened up my night. Jamie Foxx was hilarious and anything with Tim Kurkjian was awesome. Was definitely entertaining.

What was the furthest HR hit last night? Baez at 479 ft. was the mark I could remember. Very entertaining HRD.

Did you see Andre Dawson misplayed the pop up at first and hit his head ?
