Prince Fielder, Ken Griffey Jr., and All the Home Run Derby Winners
Baseball’s annual All-Star Home Run Derby has been around for almost thirty years now, believe it or not.
Since then, there have been 25 other winners, only two of whom won it more than once: Prince Fielder and Ken Griffey, Jr., who won it three times.
Aside from the Seattle Mariners (Griffey), the New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and Anaheim/California Angels have also had three derby titles apiece.
There was a major format change to the event in the year 2000, when multiple knock-out rounds were added. Before that, it was just one round, guy with the most home runs takes the crown.
Here’s a list of all the Home Run Derby Winners and how many home runs they hit in the final round (when applicable) and total.
