In '82 we had 3 players go, Cecil Cooper, Ben Oglivie & Robin Yount. I think Yount was the top vote getter.


In '82 we had four.

When will they unveil the All Star Jerseys that they wear for the HR Derby and for warm ups?

I personally kind of hope Prince eschews the HR derby.

I was going off of the Brewers website. But your right, with a little more looking I found two site confirming that he did make the team. My bad.


Edit: Funny, I thats the page I found to confirm what you said.

Yeah, I hoped he would skip it but this article makes it pretty clear he wants to participate.


"Prince Fielder sheepishly admits he never was a big fan of the Major League All-Star Game. He preferred the Home Run Derby.

Well, the Brewers' emotional and statistical leader is about to get the opportunity to take part in both. Fielder has said previously that he would love to participate in the State Farm Home Run Derby, though that lineup will not be finalized until closer to the event."

I was very surprised Fuentes made it.

I was somewhat shocked that Rollins, Renteria and Ramirez all didn't make it.

Oh well, we have four guys in and nothing to complain about this year, bummer for Philly, ATL and the Marlins that their SS's didn't get in.

Anyone know when they announce who will be in the HR Derby?

Even though they say the derby can mess with a guy's swing... alla Bobby Abreu 2 years ago. I would still love to see Prince participate. I would put money down on him winning, and it would be a lot of fun to see.

Edit: Ha, Fuentes makes it. He's not even the closer for his team anymore.

Reminds me of someone from last year...cant quite put my finger on it...

I should add, I think Hanley Ramirez is the most egregious snub. He'll be around for a long time though, maybe next year.

What is this based on?

NL All-Star Projected Rosters

AL All-Star Projected Rosters

To answer my own question...

Criteria for selection

Yeah I don't put much stock into the HR derby thing. Abreu and Tejada are two just ok HR hitters who were having career years and then had regression to the mean 2nd halves following it. Plenty of guys have won the derby and still had good second halves.

I second that. I sat in the upper deck of the Metrodome 2 weeks ago and watched him take batting practice. He launched balls way up in the upper deck. You should have heard the Twins fans ohhh'ing & ahhhh'ing. It was truly a sight. I used my phone to capture one of those bombs.

I agree completely, but you know ESPN analysts are going to talk about it...on a side note Abreu's performence was insane that year. He hit 24 homers in round 1 and 41 overall.

Prince would definitely be smashing them into McCovey Cove.. and I'd love to see it. He could get himself some more national attention on his run at the nl mvp.

I'd for Prince to put on a show, but haven't hitters gone to the derby in past years and then had a lousy second half? I'd love for Prince to have his day, but the Crew comes first!

Some have gone on to do bad, good and average.

Was Ryan Howard in the Hr Run derby last year? If so sign Prince up.


Congrats to these guys as they deserve it. Hopefully a sign things are changing and better things are to come.

Point taken.

I just thought there was this pervasive talked about "HR Derby Funk/Jinx" just like they said about the World Baseball Classic last year.
