The Home Run Derby is always one of the most exciting things to watch as a fan. We get the chance to see some of the greatest sluggers step up to the plate and mash batting practice pitches 400-500 feet into the stands.
Last year we saw Yoenis Cespedes dominate the derby, but this year some of the game’s top right-handed power hitters aren’t interested in participating.
Here’s what Goldschmidt had to say about the event:
“It’s not something, if they asked, that I would be interested in doing.”
Here’s what Abreu had to say:
“Home Run Derby is not something I’m too crazy about. It’s a good thing but I’m not really interested or looking forward to. I really wouldn’t want to do it. I did it in Cuba several times and I wasn’t much into it.”
