Home Run Derby Printable Bracket for MLB All-Star Festivities
The field is set for the 2019 MLB Home Run Derby, as Alex Bregman and Joc Pederson will join previously named participants Christian Yelich, Pete Alonso, Josh Bell, Ronald Acuna Jr., Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Cleveland Indians' home-town team representative, Carlos Santana.
The derby will take place on Monday, July 8, at 8 p.m. EST at Progressive Field in Cleveland with the winner taking home a $1 million prize.

Yelich, the reigning NL MVP, leads the pack with 31 home runs, followed by Alonso, the New York Mets' rookie phenom, with 28. Bell is next with 26 on the season, and Bregman has 23 round-trippers in 2019. Pederson and Acuna both have 20 homers and Santana has hit 19 so far this season. Guerrero only has eight home runs on the year, but Vlad Jr. wasn't called up until late April, so he's surely a threat to win as well.
The new bracket format, which debuted in 2015, has added a lot of excitement to the contest, pitting entrants against one another based on current home run totals (as of the bracket announcement on Wednesday, July 3). That puts Yelich, as the No. 1 seed, up against the Guerrero as the No. 8 seed – the largest first-round home run discrepancy (23) in the new format's young history.
No matter who wins, the annual home-run spectacle should show off some of the league's best power hitters. And with $1 million on the line, each homer is seemingly worth a little bit more to these players, so expect lots of long balls come Monday.
