Josh Hamilton Churns Out 28 Hr's in Home Run Derby
Talk about an exciting All-Star Home Run Derby. Astros, Lance Berkman, lead the group with 8 home run hits in the First Round and then came Rangers, Josh Hamilton. The Home Run Derby record was 24 Home Runs. Josh smashed 28 home runs with an average of 467' and his longest home run was 518' in the Yankee Stadium. This is the last year of the Yankee Stadium too. It will be replaced with a new stadium. At age 7, the Yankee Stadium, was my first ball park to see a major baseball game. My hero at that time was Mickey Mantle. I remember getting a Mickey Mantle bracelet. Wish I knew where that bracelet was now.
