Home Run Derby 2017: Aaron Judge highlights

3:30 | MLB         Aaron Judge The new face of baseball

Defending champion and top-seeded Giancarlo Stanton was beaten early, but another giant slugger, New York Yankees rookie Aaron Judge, lived up to his hype, winning the Home Run Derby on Monday night at Marlins Park. In other words, there would be a mixture of National League and American League players on each all-star squad. "So to me, yesterday was a new experience, a new stage in the home run derby, because I have never seen anything like that before".

Ravech's understated approach - compared with Berman's, anyway - allowed the real stars to shine, and they came through in a way that rendered Tuesday night's actual All-Star Game something of an afterthought.

Judge leads baseball with 30 home runs.

Judge hit four homers in his first five swings of the final round - driving one of them 480 feet - and brought the proceedings to an end with a 458-foot homer to center field.

Clearly, Fernandez will weigh heavily on the minds of Stanton and Marcell Ozuna when they represent the Marlins in Fernandez's home park.

Judge dominated the competition, with one of his shots sailing 513 feet to left field. The crowd groaned when his last fell short.

"That was one of the most fun things I've ever done", Moustakas said "Adrenaline was building, everything, the whole time".

Just after the season started, Major League Baseball said there had been "productive discussions" about transitioning away from the logo.

Cody Bellinger then advanced to the semis in dramatic fashion, hitting a homer in bonus time to knock out Charlie Blackmon.

Hitting without batting gloves, Bour excited fans with 22 homers.

Players staying in the batter's box, ready to hit the next pitch without taking a stroll and adjusting equipment and body parts?

Yet Judge, with a thrilling opening-round triumph over Justin Bour and a virtual victory lap the rest of the way, ensured that eyeballs would stay on this event.

"I was expected it", Judge said. In the final, he came up against young slugger Miguel Sano of the Minnesota Twins. The rookie's composure and resilience are what makes him most impressive, even if he is a Dodger.

Like being cheated out of eight seconds of precious time what shut up I'm not bitter you're bitter.

Overall, I've got to admit it. "With Justin Bour putting on a show like that, I just had to go to work".
