The Home-run Derby

I debated with myself whether to watch this annual event just before the all-star game.  But this year the format had been changed to speed it up.  So I was curious:).  I’m glad I watched it because the new faster format worked BEAUTIFULLY!  I was able to stay awake to see Todd Fraiser win it in front of his home-town packed stadium (Cincinnati).  But it was close, very close!  Frasier was tied with Joc Peterson with only 30 seconds left.  Then he creamed the first pitch he saw in the extra 30 seconds period to end it victoriously!
