Sluggers ready to display power at HR Derby The annual State Farm Home Run Derby invades Kauffman Stadium on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET, with a national broadcast on ESPN.
Thanks to another fantastic field, it should be the usual awe-inspiring power presentation serving as an All-Star appetizer. So get ready for a surplus of splashes when Robinson Cano, Prince Fielder, Jose Bautista and Mark Trumbo represent the American League and Matt Kemp, Carlos Gonzalez, Carlos Beltran and Andrew McCutchen the National.
Detroit Tiger's first baseman Prince Fielder is a past Derby champ. He didn't reach the finals last year, two years after winning it in St. Louis. Bautista, for all his in-season accolades, only clubbed four homers in his Derby debut last year and will look to vastly improve on that showing.
