When you looked at the field for this year’s Home Run Derby, you expected a big name to walk away with the crown, whether it was Prince Fielder, Robinson Cano, Chris Davis, or another star. However, it was Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics who walked away with the crown, putting on a dazzling display.

Cespedes started out the derby with 17 home runs in the first round, clearly outpacing a field whose second highest total was eight in round one, a mark shared by Chris Davis and Bryce Harper.

Of course, with totals from round one carrying over to round two, Cespedes didn’t even need to hit in the second round, as nobody was able to overtake his round one score after finishing their second at-bats.

In the finals, Cespedes took on Bryce Harper, who just could not match the power of Cespedes, who was launching balls into the night at Citi Field. While he will not be playing in the All-Star Game, Cespedes was an all-star on Derby night.
