2013 Home Run Derby Thread

Michael Cuddyer will try to become the first ever Rockies player to win the Home Run derby.



  • Eight players, four from each league selected by captains David Wright and Robinson Cano will take turns attempting to launch balls over the wall.
  • Each player has 10 outs to work with and anything not a home run is an out.
  • The four players with the highest home run totals after Round One will advance to Round Two with the other four being eliminated.
  • Then, the two players with the most home runs in the semifinals (which includes the player's first round total) will advance to the finals.
  • Home run totals are cleared at the start of the Final Round and the player with the most home runs in the head to head face off is the winner.
