Home Run Derby: Dodgers' Max Muncy Ranked No

Home Run Derby: Dodgers' Max Muncy Ranked No

The game, which features three All-Star ballparks from 2017-19, was the first console VR video game built by a US professional sports league.

For the first time since Ryan Howard in 2009 at Busch Stadium, a Philadelphia Phillies player will participate in the Home Run Derby during Major League Baseball All-Star festivities. And it is a reasonable probability Bregman will receive more screen time in the Derby than the Mid-Summer Classic. It will feature the top 32 home run hitters from the previous days of qualifying in a bracket-style competition. He joins the following players in the contest. Hi-res renderings of this year's participants will be added to the game shortly after they are announced on The 2018 T-Mobile Home Run Derby Bracket Show on ESPN (7/11 @ 10pm ET), joining the more than 50 participants from the past eight competitions already available. So, Bregman will represent a whole league versus the seven National League players.

Entering Wednesday's game against the Athletics, the LSU product has put together a terrific season up to this point. Harper (22) will oppose Freeman (16), Muncy (21) goes against Baez (17) and Bregman (19) squares off against Schwarber (17).

"I grew up watching the Home Run Derby as a kid, so I think that full circle kind of moment is pretty cool", Hoskins said. It took him 626 plate appearances to reach that total in 2017. Berkman lost in the finals in 2004 and in the first round in 2002 and 2006. He'll also be the only participant who has competed in the event previously, as a number of big-name sluggers all declined to participate.

Plus, ask your Alexa smart speaker for Prime Day deals and she will list some product deals that are exclusive to voice shoppers. It designed the day to replicate Black Friday for Amazon die-hards, but boasted more deals than the November shopping tradition.

Now, I understand some fans may be anxious about Bregman's appearance in the Derby.

With 14 home runs since June 1st, Alex Bregman is definitely riding the hot hand going into the Derby. Some key players may have skipped out on the Derby this season, such as Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge and Mike Trout, but the field is still exciting.

As for experience, nobody outside of Bryce Harper has particpated in the Home Run Derby before.
