The 2012 All Star Homerun Derby went down last night & congrats are in order for Detriot Tigers' Prince Fielder for winning the derby for the second times in four years, the only other player to do the same was Ken Griffey Jr.
It was up to Fielder & Toronto Blue Jay's Jose Bautista in the final round but Fielder ultimately took over. Fielder had a total of 28 home runs over three rounds, he hit the four longest drives of the night, including a pair at 476 feet. When asked about how he felt being put in the same category as legend Ken Griffey Jr., Fielder answered "Just being mentioned with him is real special," said Fielder, who spent time at Griffey's house when he was a kid. "My dad would let me go over and play video games all day. He always took care of me when I was a kid." (via ESPN)
Last year's winner New York Yankees' Robinson Cano wasn't able to repeat again this year and endured booing from the fans in the crowd when he was introduced.
