Home Run Derby format explained

The format of the Home Run Derby is straightforward. It is a single-elimination tournament, which will feature three rounds. The player who is the higher seed bats second in their matchup. Once they surpass the total number of home runs hit by the first player in that particular round, it is over.

In regards to the timing, players will be given three minutes each in the first and second rounds, while the finals will only be two minutes.

Players will be given 30-seconds of bonus time in each round, but they can increase it to 60 seconds if they are able to hit a home run further than 475-feet in regulation time.
