Home Run Derby




Anyone see the Home Run Derby last night? I really can't say that I've ever watched it before, but last night since there was nothing much else on I decided to watch it.


It was actually pretty interesting. And I really enjoyed it. Even though Justin Morneau ended up winning it. The real story was Josh Hamilton. He hit 28 home runs in the first round. It was awesome! It was one hit after another.


I have no idea how this Home Run Derby works but I think if you hit 28 home runs you should win the thing. I actually stopped watching it once he hit all the runs. Only to find out later that he didn't win! It seems crazy to me!


Josh Hamilton has a story too, I guess he overcame a drug problem and was out of baseball for 3 years. Now he's beat his problem and has returned to baseball. It really was something to see!
