Prince Fielder has been named the winner of the 2012 MLB Home Run Derby after hitting 12 dingers in the final round. The Tigers sluggers hit 28 over the course of the competition for his second Home Run Derby win.
Eliminated in the first round were Andrew McCutchen (four home runs), Carlos Gonzalez (four home runs), Matt Kemp (one home run) and Robinson Cano (zero home runs).
Carlos Beltran (12 home runs) and Mark Trumbo (13 home runs) were eliminated after the second round, while Jose Bautista finished behind Fielder after hitting seven bombs in the final round.
Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, will be home of the 2013 Home Run Derby. With the fences moved in prior to this season, there should be a lot of strong performances next year.
There are a number of players in baseball that could take part in the event, but there are some sluggers we absolutely need to see.
