MLB All-Star Game and Home-Run Derby
Continuing a tradition that dates back to 1933, the MLB All-Star Game comes to Minneapolis’s Target Field on July 15, capping a two-day celebration of America’s pastime. But while few things have changed about the Midsummer Classic, its most popular All-Star-Week precursor—the Home Run Derby—sports a facelift for its 20th anniversary. In the new format, all ten participants swing for the fences in the first round, in which each player receives seven outs. The bottom eight players will then be seeded for head-to-head competition, and the top two performers receive a bye into the third round. Despite the different framework, fans can expect the same awe-inspiring power and bloodthirsty bats for which the event is famous, as the ten-player field includes last year’s derby champ and sluggers near the top of the leagues’ home-run totals.
On Tuesday night, the top players of the American and National Leagues duel it out for pride and coveted home-field advantage in the World Series. In 84 prior games—the teams met twice annually from 1959–1962, and no game was held in 1945—the National League holds a slight advantage, with a record of 43–39–2 against their AL foes.
