On Monday evening, the 2012 Home Run Derby will draw the attention of millions once again with the premier sluggers in the world going toe-to-toe.
Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers and defending champion Robinson Cano of the New York Yankeeswere chosen as captains for their respective leagues. From there, each of them got to pick three players to do battle with in Kansas City.
The rules are simple: each player gets 10 outs (any pitch swung at that isn't a home run). The top four totals will move on from the first round, then the top two combined totals will go into the finals, where the slate is wiped clean and the best round wins it all.
It should be a wild night at Kauffman Stadium with the players putting on quite a show.
