AAA HR Derby Recap 2014

Today, the AAA All Star HR Derby took place in Durham, NC. At this great event, 6 of the best AAA rising sluggers took the field!

Fun rules were added to the game, such as a new last out Composite Bat rule, where a hitter had the option of using a metal bat during his last swing! Allen Dykstra (Mets Prospect) got lucky in the final rounds, as his opposition couldn’t get a single ball over the wall. Dykstra ( see video below) promptly slugged one over the right field fence to win the crown. This is the second time in three years that a Mets prospect won the AAA Derby (Val Passcuci 2012). Two minutes after Dykstra won it, the rain came on down and the post game fireworks and concert was cancelled. #DurhamASG
