2011 MLB Home Run Derby: Who Prince Fielder and David Ortiz Should Select
Captains David Ortiz and Prince Fielder have each won the Home Run Derby

While the format that determines the Home Run Derby champion has stayed intact, MLB has decided for the first time to have league captains in 2011. 

The defending champion of last year's edition in Anaheim, David Ortiz of the Red Sox, is captain of the American League squad, while champion of the 2009 edition in St. Louis, Prince Fielder, is captain for the National League squad. 

The pair will pick any three players of their choice to participate in the derby, and they don't have to be All-Stars by nature. 

That said, here is who Ortiz and Fielder should have their eyes on to participate in the 2011 Home Run Derby in Arizona (just in case you ask, I did not put Ryan Braun or Adrian Gonzalez in this slideshow, as I don't foresee two teammates participating in the Derby).
