2016 MLB Home Run Derby: All the Details

InvestorPlace InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

The 2016 Home Run Derby is taking place tonight.

The event will take place in San Diego - where the All-Star game will be played - and it will feature a star-studded lineup of Corey Seager, Robinson Cano, Todd Frazier, Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Carlos Gonzalez, Mark Trumbo and Wil Myers.

The eight contestants will each get matched up against another based on how many home runs they have hit so far in 2016. Three timed rounds will help separate the eight hitters, which will then dwindle down to four, then a final two.

The new format of the event will ensure that the 2016 Home Run Derby will only take about two hours-a significant improvement over the three+ hours that the Derby lasted with its previous format.
