This Year's MLB Home Run Derby Should Be a Can't Miss

Yesterday, Major League Baseball dropped the Home Run Derby bracket for this year's All-Star game. The bracket sets the highest seeds up against the lowest seeds, with the Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton getting the number one spot as the reigning champ. This could set Stanton up for a potential final round matchup with the No. 2 seed Aaron Judge. The Yankees slugger currently leads the league with 29 home runs. A Stanton-Judge final would be the best outcome for fans and MLB, as both are known to hit home runs nearly 500 ft.

The 2017 All Star game will be played Tuesday, July 11 in Stanton's home stadium, Marlins Park. The Home Run Derby will be held the night before the game.
