About the MLB Home Run Derby
Of all the All-Star events that occur prior to Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, the Home Run Derby is the biggest, most popular of them all. The Derby has been an All-Star Game event since 1985 and is usually held the night before the All-Star Game itself is played. Throughout the years, the format of the event has changed several times, from a two-inning competition where each player had five outs per inning, to a match play format for the top 4 hitters that reached the second round, to the format used today. The current format and rules for the Home Run Derby are very simple. Eight All-Stars are chosen for the competition, 4 from the American League and 4 from the National League. The four players that have the most home runs after the first round advance to the second round, and then the 2 players with the most home runs following the second round advance to the finals. The home run totals for the advancing hitters carry over from round one to round two, before resetting for the final round. This rule has been used since the 2006 Home Run Derby. The hitters receive 10 “outs” per round, with an “out” being any swing that does not result in a home run. If any All-Stars are ever tied following one of the rounds, the tie breaker is a 5 swing “swing-off” with the player hitting the most homers in those 5 swings advancing.
There have been some very memorable Home Run Derby competitions over the years, with some of the competition’s biggest moments coming after the 2000 Derby. In 2005, Bobby Abreu, then of the Philadelphia Phillies, set the record for total home runs in one derby competition when he hit 41 en route to defeating Ivan Rodriguez in the finals. Abreu hit 24 home runs in the first round, which was then a single round record. In 2008, Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers broke Abreu’s single round home run record when he hit 28 during the first round of the event at the old Yankee Stadium in New York. Hamilton lost in the finals to Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins, but finished the competition with 35 homers, second most all-time for one Home Run Derby. The third highest total home runs for one tournament is 32, set by Boston’s David Ortiz in 2010 and matched by the Yankees’ Robinson Cano in 2011. As of the finish of the 2011 Home Run Derby, David Ortiz owns the record for most home runs all-time in the Derby with 77, followed by Ken Griffey, Jr. with 70, Jason Giambi with 67, Sammy Sosa with 65, and Mark McGwire with 56. Ken Griffey, Jr. has the most Home Run Derby victories of all-time, as he won 3 competitions during his astounding career. The St. Louis Cardinals have been represented the most times in the Home Run Derby, having had a total of 13 participants going into the 2012 event. The Seattle Mariners are second having had 12 participants, followed by the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics, both who have had 11 participants. There have been only two players that have won the Home Run Derby, homered in the All-Star Game, and won the All-Star Game MVP. Those players were Garret Anderson in 2003 for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. in 1991.
Kauffman Stadium, home of the American League’s Kansas City Royals, was the host of the 2012 Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star Game. The last time the Royals hosted an All-Star Game and its festivities was 1973. The 2013 Home Run Derby is scheduled to be at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. The site for the 2014 Home Run Derby has yet to be determined, but the Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Twins appear to be the two franchises bidding for the 2014 All-Star festivities.
