The Home Run Derby has long been one of my favorite annual non-Cubs-specific baseball events. Whether it was the formative Sammy Sosa years, the laid-back atmosphere, or the fact that I’m totally cliche and like to watch homers, I couldn’t say. I just know I like it, and I watch it every year.
The Wife, because she knows this and is awesome, suggested that we get some appetizers and have The Little Girl stay up a little late and watch some of the Derby with us. So that’s what we’re doing, and I’m totally stoked.
The Derby starts at 7pm CT on ESPN or MLB.com. Feel free to chat about the Derby in the comments below.
