MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

HOME RUN DERBY X

The MLB Home Run Derby X event in Crystal Palace Park, London attracted more than 1.2 million viewers via live stream and 6.9m total event views across MLB’s social channels where fans watched the Yankees beat the Red Sox 42-40 in the final.

At the heart of the event was the electrifying new baseball format where 4 teams, each with an MLB Legend, a Superstar, a Rookie and Wild Card representing the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees battled it out in the prelims. The 3rd place playoff saw Dodgers triumph over Cubs before the Yankees out slugged the Red Sox in the final, with Softball superstar Erika Piancastelli taking home the MVP award.
