Tuesday Afterschool Special: Gone-carlo

Stanton wins Home Run Derby with power

The Miami Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton won last night's Home Run Derby by hitting 61 homers, which obliterated the previous record of 41. The man regarded as the strongest player in baseball earned his reputation, crushing more than five miles worth of home runs, including 18 of the longest 19 hit. He smashed past-champion Robinson Cano 24–7 in the first round, took out top-seeded Mark Trumbo 17–14 in the second round, and then easily beat defending champ Todd Frazier 20–13 in the final. His first round mark of 24 homers included 12 that traveled further than 450 feet. Here's a look at all 24:
