T-Mobile has partnered with the MLB to sponsor the Home Run Derby. The T-Mobile Bracket Challenge tasks entrants with picking a perfect bracket for Monday's Home Run Derby. Those who do will have the "chance" to win four tickets to Game 1 of the 2017 World Series and a $500 MasterCard gift card.
 :$$$:
To enter the Home Run Derby Bracket Challenge, go here:

https://securea.mlb.com/mlb/events/all_star/y2017/home_run_derby/challenge/

You have until 7:59 PM ET on July 10th to enter.

Marlins Park
Left Field Line – 344 ft (105 m)
Left-Center Power Alley – 386 ft (118 m)
Center Field – 407 ft (124 m)
Right-Center Power Alley – 392 ft (119 m)
Right Field Line – 335 ft (102 m)

The Rules: The 8 seeded players will face off head-to-head in rounds consisting of 4 minutes each. Players can take one 45-second timeout during each of the first 2 rounds and the finalists will be allowed 2 timeouts, factoring in potential fatigue. Players will get 30 seconds of bonus time if they hit 2 440-foot homers during their regulation time.


T-Mo will also have 12 magenta baseballs hidden throughout Miami, and on July 8th and July 9th, @TMobile will give clues to their locations. Folks that find the balls will win a pair of tickets to the Home Run Derby. T-Mobile also says that during the Home Run Derby’s bonus time, every magenta home run will result in a surprise for a section of the ballpark, like $10 MLBShop.com gift cards.

Stanton hit too many grounders to start off. Plus, they were cheating to give him a chance to advance by letting his pitcher throw before the previous ball had landed.

I read that Max will start! Great for him and the Nats.  I might have to watch the first few innings with him and the other starters we have.

I'm guessing that Sano has a lot of family and friends from the Dominican Republic in Miami.

Now batting:
No. 2 Aaron Judge (Yankees) vs. No. 3 Cody Bellinger (Dodgers)

Does anyone know who picked these 8 players for the Home Run Derby and what criteria was used? I don't get having 2 from the Yankees and 2 from the Dodgers, out of 8 players. I can see 2 from the home town team, when they both hit 20 or  more.
 :shrug:
Sanchez only had 13 homers.. on page 3 of HR rankings.

Can you imagine how sick that Yankees lineup is going to be with Judge, Sanchez and Harper in 2019?
