Each year thousands of fans are dazzled by the one event that focuses on the most exciting aspect of baseball: Home Runs! And I thought it would be a fun idea to build my own Home Run Derby Dream Team, and take you, the readers, through an entire event.
It’s very easy, the setting is Wrigley Field (I’m a Cubs fan) and the rules are simple: 10 outs to each batter, the Top 4 batter move onto the second round, with the Top two batters advancing to the Finals. In the event of a tie the two batters will have a swing-off,or bat-off if you’re a Chris Berman fan.
The reasoning behind for whom I picked is quite simple, these guys are some of the most frightening hitter in the game today, and some of these players are just beginning their rise to greatness, but as with any sort of piece like this, the subject matter is…well, subjective. So please be sure to chime in with whom your dream team would be at the bottom with who would take it all!
