This is a guest post by my 10 year old, Colin. He is taking a journalism class and was excited to write this post for my blog. The photos were taken by my 9 year old, Nate -- except for the one of the three of them, which was snapped by a kind person at the stadium.
My father, brother and I all went to the Home Run Derby at Chase Stadium in Phoenix, AZ a couple days ago! It was fun.
I've never seen so many homeruns in my life. The longest streak of home runs was 12. It was done by Robinson Cano. The players competing were the best home run hitters in the MLB.
Everyone booed Prince Fielder and Ricky Weeks because Fielder chose Weeks over Justin Upton and it ticked a ton of people off. I was one of them! Lots of people in the audience were chanting "Justin Upton" when Weeks went up to hit. He only hit 3 home runs and was out in the first round.
In the finals, Adrian Gonzalez and Robinson Cano hit. The winner of the Derby was Robinson Cano, who plays for the NY Yankees.
