Aaron Judge's Home Run Derby Performance Brings Back Feelings Of Yesteryear

No chance. Judge responded with 23 homers, the most of any round all night.

Marlins first baseman Justin Bour, the seventh seed, put together a monster performance, going deep a remarkable 22 times. "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". He took the opportunity to lift the crowd on several occasions which saw the champion of previous year and the favorite with Judge to win the competition, Giancarlo Stanton be eliminated in the initial round. The first round alone-by far the most exciting part of the evening-saw several intense showdowns, including reigning champ and no. 1 seed Giancarlo Stanton being upset by no. 8 Gary Sanchez in a 17-16 battle.

For baseball fans, there are few instances in professional sports more exciting than a home run. His 47 home runs are still behind Stanton's 61 home runs set previous year.

"It's definitely very exciting", said Sanchez, like Judge a participant in Monday night's Home Run Derby. Another ex-Marlins player, LHP Andrew Miller of the Cleveland Indians, made his second straight All-Star Game, both since leaving Miami. The two semifinal winners then meet in the finals.

In the first round of the Home Run Derby, Charlie Blackmon faced the Cody Bellinger, first baseman/outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"Chris Berman set the bar so high for the Home Run Derby, my goal will be to keep it there and let the awesome athletes take it to new heights", Ravech said in a statement.

Judge leads the major leagues with 30 home runs, and some Yankees fans showed up to support him in their full dress - flowing black robes and white powdered wigs.

That thing goes off when the Marlins hit home runs.

Judge has already broken Joe DiMaggio's record for most home runs by a Yankees rookie and he also ranks second in the AL with 66 RBI. He tagged two more on in the bonus because the dude just loves hitting homers. "I just want to go out there, try to have fun and make contact". After his 4:00 minutes, Bellinger had just 13 - but the rookie had earned himself:30 of bonus time that Blackmon did not. Sano hit 21 homers in the first half for the Twins. "I would really like to get the back story".
