After struggling to barely make it out of the first round, Prince Fielder went for the dramatic showing - launching even more balls into the fountain at Kauffman Stadium sending the crowd and the media personalities into an absolute tizzy.
Prince just took this Derby over: 11 HR, 4 inthe fountains, 1 in a luxury box, 4 over 460 feet. I retract my earlier tweet. He can win now— Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) July 10, 2012
Mark Trumbo once again showed why Mariners fans need to cry for the next decade or so, launching some absolute bombs into the crowds at Kauffman Stadium, prompting Chris Berman to say "That one was TEED OFF" while the announcing crew talked about hitting tees. Trumbo barely squeaked into a elimination swing-off against Jose Bautista, but Bautista shed his second round struggles to advance to face Fielder in the final round.
