2021 All Star Game

Congrats to Pete Alonso of the Mets on his Home Run Derby victory last night! I am a bit crushed that Salvador Perez got knocked out in the first round by Alonso himself, but I am glad that Salvy managed to put on a show of his own.

The 2021 MLB All Star Game takes place tonight at 5:30 pm Mountain Time at Coors Field. You can find the rosters for both teams here.

2018 Home Run Derby

In case you’ve been living under a rock lately (which, admittedly, I pretty much have been), the 2018 MLB All Star Break is underway, and the Home Run Derby is slated to start at 8 pm Eastern tonight.  Here is the bracket for tonight’s competition, courtesy of MLB.com:

2018 HR Derby
Rules for the competition can be found here.  Personally, I find all the rules regarding the timer and timeouts, etc. to be too onerous to want to track.  Things were much simpler in the days when hitters were just granted a set number of “outs” per round.  But perhaps that’s just me.
