I relish the home run derby the day before the All Star game. It is, to me, one of the most awesome displays of power in sports. It’d be like a bunch of quarterbacks throwing 70 yard touchdowns… over and over and over.
The game’s in Houston this year in the ex-Enron stadium (Tropicana, now?), which is a cool looking place. However, I had no idea you could actually hit a ball out of the stadium until I saw this year’s home run derby participants doing it repeatedly. What a show!
