The Reds are off tonight, and the greater portion of the week, but there is still some sort of baseball going on tonight. In my opinion, the homerun derby is the greatest All-Star event of any of the major sports. While I went years without watching the homerun derby, I have gotten back into it in recent years thanks in large part to my kids. My oldest son is 9 and my next one is 4 and both are obsessed with all things baseball. They absolutely love the Homerun Derby and therefore I watch it with them.
There are no Reds participating tonight but it should still be a pretty good show. That’s assuming our ears don’t bleed with all the “back, back, back” calls! So who’s everyone taking tonight? My heart says go with a National League bat, but my head says take an American League guy. So with that said, I’m taking Robinson Cano.
Pick away and discuss the festivities. Go Reds! (Sorry, just a habit)
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
