Batter Up

When it comes to making homers, Boston’s David Ortiz is an absolute pimp. Ditto for Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday, and New York Yankees baseman Robinson Cano. It’s probably why all four of these sluggers, as well as a dozen other baseball superstars, have been selected for this year’s Home Run Derby at Chase Field during Major League Baseball’s All-Star Week.

Participating players will unleash dingers and moonshots aplenty during the contest, where baseball’s best take some mighty swings to determine who has the mightiest bat.
