The Major League Baseball All-Star Home Run Derby has taken on many forms since its beginning in 1985. It is an afternoon to evening event on the Monday before the All-Star Game. It has been televised nationally since 1990 on ESPN.

[edit] Format

When the Derby first began in 1985 each player received two turns at bat with five outs per turn at bat. Any swing that was not a home run was an out. This format allowed for the possiblity of ties. The derby started out as a contest between the two leagues, with each league having an equal number of players. At the first derby there were ten players (five per league), by the second the number was down to six (three per league) and the third only featured four sluggers.

The 1988 derby at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, OH was cancelled due to rain. From 1989 to 1994, there were eight players invited, four from each league.

The format changed in 1991 to three rounds rather than two innings. Each player would receive ten outs per round. The top four players with the most home runs in the first round would move on to the second round. The top two hitters in the second round would bat for the championship. From 1996 to 1999 there were ten competitors at the derby.

The format of the derby was changed in 2000 when after the first round the four advancing players were put into two seeded brackets, with the winners of each matchup advancing to the finals. This format was used from 2000 to 2003.

In 2005, as part of the announcement of the inaugural World Baseball Classic, the derby featured eight players representing their native countries rather than their respective leagues. The nations represented were Canada, Dominican Republic, Netherlands, Panama, Puerto Rico, South Korea, United States, and Venezuela. Andruw Jones represented the Netherlands having been born on Curaçao in the Netherlands Antilles.

The rules changed once again in 2006, when total home runs replaced round by round totals. The top four hitters in the first round would advance to the semifinals, and their home run total from the first round would carry into the semifinals. The two players with the most home runs in the semifinals (which includes the player's first round clouts) would advance to the finals. At this point the home run totals would be cleared.

In 2011, a captain was chosen in each league, responsible for picking his three teammates, in order to give an extra incentive for the chosen sluggers to agree to take part. David Ortiz and Prince Fielder were the first two captains.

[edit] Golden Ball

At both the 2005 and 2006 derbies, Century 21 - a real estate company - sponsored a charity tie-in with the event. The Golden Ball was used once a player reaches nine outs, thus having only one out remaining. For each home run hit with a golden ball, Century 21 and Major League Baseball would donate $21,000 to charity. In both derbies, fourteen homers were hit raising $294,000 in each year.

The 2007 and 2008 editions of the gold ball were sponsored by State Farm Insurance. They pledged $17,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs across the country for every home run hit with 9 outs.

The 17,000 supposedly represents the number of State Farm Agents across the country.
