The Home Run Derby brackets have been released for the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game eve event.
The Major League Baseball office released the Home Run Derby bracket on ESPN on June 6 (KST).
Eight players were seeded according to their season home run records. In the event of a tie, the number of home runs hit since June 15 was used to break the tie.
That’s why Luis Robert Jr. (White Sox), with 25 home runs, is ahead of Pete Alonso (Mets), who is tied for the record. Since June 15, Roberts Jr. has hit nine home runs, while Alonso has three.
The No. 1 seed will face No. 8 Adley Rutzman (Baltimore), while No. 2 Alonso will face No. 7 Julio Rodriguez (Seattle), No. 3 Mookie Betts (Dodgers) will face No. 6 Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto), and No. 4 Adolis Garcia (Texas) will face No. 5 Randy Arozarenas (Tampa Bay) in the first round.
Alonso is the only defending champion in the field. He won two titles in the 2019 and 2021 seasons. He will try to win a third time.바카라사이트
Ken Griffey Jr. is the only player to win the Home Run Derby three times. He reached the top in 1994, 1998, and 1999.
There are other players in the field who have a history of performing well, if not winning. Rodriguez was a disappointing runner-up in last year’s derby, losing to Juan Soto in the final, but he made a strong impression by hitting 81 home runs over the three rounds.
Guerrero Jr. will also be looking to win his first Home Run Derby title after wowing fans with a total of 91 arches over three rounds in 2019.
The Home Run Derby will take place at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA, on April 11 at 9 a.m. ET (5 p.m. PT on April 10).
