It's that time of year again. Major League Baseball is about to reach its halfway point for the 2009 season. That means all those wonderful festivities that go along with the All-Star game are soon approaching as well. Here at Guyville.com, our favorite All-Star event is the Home Run Derby.
With big league sluggers like Albert Pujols, Carlos Pena, and Ryan Howard participating, this year is certain to be a slug fest for the ages.
Here's a quick rundown of the rules for the 2009 MLB Home Run Derby. For the first two rounds, home run totals carry over. All eight players will participate in the first round; the four highest totals from Round One will move to the semi-finals. After that, the top two finalists left will face off in the last deciding round. The winner of that round will come away with the trophy.
Who do you think will come away with the 2009 trophy? Let us know in our poll below:
