Angels star Shohei Ohtani will be the American League All-Star team starting pitcher and bat leadoff as designated hitter less than 24 hours after competing in the Home Run Derby as the No. 1 seed.
Hope Shohei Ohtani wins the home run derby, takes a post event interview, and tells Stephen A. Smith to fuck off in Japanese

Home Run Derby!
Though he was eliminated in the 1st Round by Juan Soto, Shohei Ohtani hit six 500-foot home runs, the most in a single Home Run Derby since Statcast began tracking in 2016.
So no one in the crowd is forced to wear masks at the Home Run Derby but the kids shagging balls in the outfield have to wear them because they’ll be on TV. For what? Theatrics? #whatajoke
Pete Alonso is a home run derby player that plays full seasons on the side. Born for this
The Mets have paid Pete Alonso about $1.17 million since he made the majors. In that time, he has won $2 million in the Home Run Derby.
The Home Run Derby is the most, pure simple thing we have left in this country. Should be impossible to screw it up. Yet ESPN and the MLB are trying their best
PETE ALONSO CAREER EARNINGS…
Winning the Home Run Derby twice: $2 million
Actual salary, 2019-21: $1.47 million
A perverse little grace note of the Home Run Derby that I've always appreciated is that when they're not launching homers the best hitters in the sport are just absolutely smoking the ball at pods of children in the outfield.
the Home Run Derby should be at Coors Field every year like it's the Masters at Augusta
Though he was eliminated by Pete Alonso, Salvador Perez's 28 1st Round HR are the most ever by a catcher in a Home Run Derby.
Pete Alonso has once again won the Home Run Derby! #LGM
RT if you want Pete Alonso to go for the Home Run Derby three-peat next year 👀
(It has never been done in MLB history)
First Home Run Derby for a lot of us. Experience of a lifetime!
We appreciate all of you for supporting what we do and making this possible for our crew
Pete Alonso just repped Mobb Deep and Nas while dominating the home run derby. I'm going to pass out.
This guy. I get home and turn on the Home Run Derby and see this guy.
The real Home Run Derby Champion
The Home Run Derby analysis is always so good. How many different ways can you say “He needs to hit more home runs here”
How is ESPN not telling us the distance of each of these home runs hit during the Home Run Derby?
Pete Alonso talks about having Nas, Mobb Deep & The Notorious B.I.G. for his Home Run Derby playlist, and why he felt that was important:
"I feel like I'm a part-time New Yorker...for me New York has treated me so well. I love the city and I love playing for the Mets"
Francisco Lindor (and his daughter) enjoyed watching Pete Alonso win the Home Run Derby:
"Hell yeah baby, get that belt baby!!" 🤣
One year ago, Trey Mancini was undergoing treatment for colon cancer. Tonight, he'll compete in the Home Run Derby.

Shohei Ohtani just hit a ball 510-feet in batting practice, which is just 3 feet short of the longest home run in Home Run Derby history during the Statcast era.
This derby is going to be ELECTRIC.
Remarkable: Major League Baseball paid Pete Alonso $767,670 MORE ($2M) for six hours of his time during the Home Run Derby in 2019 & 2021 than the Mets paid him for those seasons ($1,232,330)
If have Shohei Ohtani wins the home run derby I’ll send everyone who RTs this a video of someone getting a home run off of me https://t.co/iAIvSnCVdC
I once fixed a home run derby at the little league level and made a lot of money gambling on it
