PHOTO: Triple-A HR Derby winner gets a championship belt
This is an outstanding prize for the eventual winner of the Triple-A Home Run Derby.
Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby takes place Monday night in Minnesota's Target Field. The Triple-A Derby is also Monday, though a bit earlier and in Durham and the winner is going to get this championship belt?
Color me jealous. That's incredible.
For the International League, all-time IL home run king Mike Messman will be joined by former big-leaguer Dan Johnson and Jesus Aguilar, who has had a cup of coffee with the Indians this season.
From the Pacific Coast League, former MLB slugger Mike Jacobs will be joined by Francisco Pena of the Royals organization and Mets farmhand Allan Dykstra.
Um, MLB, someone get on a championship belt for Monday's event please. We aren't just requesting. We're demanding.
