Cano Wins Home Run Derby

 New York Yankee Robinson Cano outslugged Boston Red Sox Adrian Gonzalez by a single home run in the final round of the HR Derby Monday night. Cano knocked 12 out the park, one more than Gonzalez. Other participants included Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks of the Milwaukee Brewers, Matt Holliday of the St. Louis Cardinals, Matt Kemp of the LA Dodgers, David Ortiz of the Red Sox, and Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Perhaps the most memorable moment of the HR derby was a scary one. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.

Again highlighting the dangers of trying to catch a ball at a big league ballpark, a fan standing on a table above the pool deck fell over earlier trying to catch a Prince Fielder homer. The fan was grabbed by his brother before going all the way over, where he could have fallen about 20 feet, and was dangling by his feet when he was pulled back up.

Last week, a 39-year-old fan, Shannon Stone, died while trying to catch a ball thrown into the stands at a Rangers game in Arlington, Texas.

Thank God the fan didn’t fall. Stone’s death is a sad story that has been in the baseball headlines for days. Another tragedy in the immediate aftermath of Stone’s death is too unbearable to imagine.
