The unofficial midway point of the season is here, as the All-Star Break starts tonight. That means, as is tradition, the 2019 Home Run Derby is officially here. Fans will watch as some giant baseball men smash dingers out of the home of the Cleveland baseball team. Here is the bracket, from a quick twitter search:

There was a slight change since Wednesday, when this was originally tweeted out. Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich has dropped out of the competition, due to the lack of Reds’ pitching he would be facing off against. Actually, he’s nursing a sore back, which sucks. Anyway, hopefully it’s as exciting as last year’s, where Bryce Harper came back and won in front of his home fans. Or the 2015 one, where Todd Frazier did awesome things in Cincinnati. Go Dingers!
