I picked 10 hitters randomly from the set that comes with the game. I had only one rule on selection. I would not use Carlos Quentin under any circumstances.

The HR Derby, for nostalgia sake, was held at Wrigley Field in California. Each of the 10 hitters got 20 outs in the first round. The top 4 including tiues move to the second round, which would have 10 outs. That may decide the champ. If it didn't then each player tied for the lead would get 5 more outs. Home run totals do carry over from round to round.

After the first round, these were the totals in the order in which they hit: Nelson Cruz 7, David Ortiz 2, Adam Dunn 3, Kelly Johnson 2, B.J. Upton 4, Corey Hart 1, Mark Teixeira 6, Joey Votto 9, Prince Fielder 8, Carlos Beltran 4.

The final four in order are: Teizeira, Cruz, Fielder, Votto. Teixeira hit 3 to give him 9. Cruz hit 2 and that gave him 9. It was up to Fielder to put a few out to put some pressure on Votto. But Fielder hit none. votto needed one to win. He had five straight outs before he hit the winner, a belt that cleared the right field wall, which is 339 feet from home. The ball landed in a parking lot behind the wall and bounded onto Avalon Boulevard. It measured 372 feet. He finished his turn and hit 1 more for good measure.

With a little imagination, this is a fun game.

For my 1st derby I also used Wrigley in LA. I looked those dimenishons.

No wonder they used that park. 339 ft to right. I had Babe Ruth vs Hank

Aaron. I used the career cards for both. I also used the rules of the 60's

show 9innings and each man only had 3 outs per inning.

The 1st pitch Ruth saw he hit 390 ft. In the 4th, Ruth blasted 3 bombs and

in the 5th, he hit one 398 ft the longest shot of the contest. In the 6th with

Ruth ahead 5-2, Aaron hit 4 homers after making 2 outs to take a 6-5 lead.
The Sultan of Swat then hit a homer in the 7th,8th, and 9th to give him

a 2 homer lead going to the bottom of the 9th. The Hammer homered

with one out to cut the lead to 1 but could not get another blast. The

Bambino was victorious 8-7. This is a fun quick playing game and with

all the different eras the number of match-ups that could be made are

numerious. To the Downeys, good job
