Grand salami time!
One of our favorite sporting events of the year is the MLB Home Run Derby, as hours of our favorite sluggers cracking dingers over the fence is about as entertaining as it gets.
While there are of course a few favorites to win the thing, it’s still also fun to see what upsets occur in the tournament bracket. Can Stanton defend his title against Sanchez? Will rookie New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, a number two seed, remain dominant based off of his first half of the season performance (ESPN sure thinks so)? Maybe Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers, another rookie can shine?
So how about watching the Home Run Derby without cable? The all-star event will be hosted on ESPN, so there are a few pretty straightforward ways to watch it online.
