We’ve got a new Homerun Derby Champ & his name is David Ortiz.  During the All-Star festivites, the homerun derby is one of the fans’ favorite events.  Corey Hart of the Milwaukee Brewers put on a show in the 1st round, hitting 13 homeruns.  He, Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez & Miguel Cabrera all moved onto the second round (Nick Swisher, Vernon Wells, Matt Holliday & Chris Young were the other participants that didn’t make it past Round 1.)

   

The homeruns from round 1 transfer over to the next round so Corey Hart should’ve been in good shape but he couldn’t even hit 1 homer in Round 2.  Ortiz & Hanley moved onto the final round with 21 total homeruns a piece.  In the last round, Ortiz hit 11 homeruns & Hanley only hit 5.  Big Papi’s little son was the cutest thing watching his dad & at one point during the final round, he asked him what place he was in.  Will Ferrell was also on hand to do some hilarious homerun calls.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for the All-Star game.  Whichever side wins gets home field advantage during the World Series & the American League has been totally dominating for more then the last decade.  David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays will be the starting pitcher for the AL & Ubaldo Jimenez will take the ball for the NL.  Mercedes from “Glee” will be singing the National Anthem & Colbie Caillat will be singing “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch.
