San Diego will host MLB’s All-Star Week in July, and a reader at the Padres’ park today sent along a photo of a scoreboard graphic for the Home Run Derby. We asked MLB if it was legit or just a plausible roster used to test the graphics, and you can decide whether or not you believe them.
Sometimes when you dive into the stands, you come up with the catch of the season, and sometimes, you get soda all over yourself and smash your face up.
If you ever catch some dingus being like, “Wehhhhh, baseball is lame!” just show them this photo, taken at last night’s Reds-Cardinals game by AP photographer Jeff Roberson.
The Home Run Derby was, from top to bottom, the best in the event’s three-decade history. (I want to hug the phrase “buzzer-beating home run.” We’ve finally perfected sports.) MLB is rightfully being universally praised for introducing new rules that increased the drama, excitement, and competition, and I don’t want…
We thought the new Home Run Derby format sounded good, and it turns out that it was. In a scene straight out of an MLB marketer’s daydream, longtime Cincinnati Red Todd Frazier won in bonus time over Joc Pederson, the most exciting Home Run Derby in years.

Over the course of his career, baseball players went from grown men I admired to people who are now younger than me. These two pictures, of Jeter posing with Reds 3B Todd Frazier 16 years apart,…
OK, this is getting ridiculous.

We were wrong.
You may remember reading about the Reds' Todd Frazier last week, when he hit a Jamie Moyer "fastball" out of the park by essentially throwing his bat at the pitch. It was a pretty incredible feat, one which ensured that the 26-year-old rookie will at least be as memorable as that bird that Randy Johnson destroyed…
Old Man Moyer will be shaking his cane at kids for days after this one. On a day when he gave up four home runs and allowed seven runs against the Cincinnati Reds, this right here will stick in his craw most. Todd Frazier hit a home run in the bottom of the fourth by essentially throwing his bat at the ball.
