While a lot of this morning’s Home Run Derby analysis is either focusing on Nelson Cruz’ welcome-to-the-public-eye performance, or Chris Berman’s incredibly-aged shtick
, perhaps a little bit more love should be given to the new
King of the home runs. Keep in mind Fielder beat out overwhelming crowd favorite Albert Pujols, 2006 Derby champ Ryan Howard and the hot-swinging Cruz to capture the crown. In the final round, Fielder hit six bombs to Cruz’ five, and demonstrated a swing that’s capable of hitting the ball a country mile — provided a country mile measures 503 feet (we checked, it does).
Just in case you missed any of Fielder’s performance, there’s video; although, I don’t expect it to last that long. Who knows? Maybe MLB will turn a blind eye to the free advertising. Doubtful, but you never know.
