The MLB All-Star Home Run Derby is Monday, July 11 at Chase Field in Phoenix. Many of the participants and other All-Stars will be tweeting during the event and ArizonaSports.com is your source for their tweets.
Well said, Mr. Ortiz. And on that positive note, we end this story.
That’s as good as it gets!! Congrats to @RobinsonCano, def put on a show. Had the best time of my life and def is a dream come true.
Well done, Mr. Bautista. Shame that first round tripped you up.
Greatest #HRDerby ever!
We would have to agree. It was rather epic.
Well deserved. Someone should add up how many feet his homers totaled over the whole Derby.
Reggie: my man my man like Denzil in the American Ganster
Would you watch that movie?
Mr O keep bangin ny man
Bad typo here by Mr. Jackson.
reggie robbie bring it home to the bronx, for the Bomber fans. Lets go Yankee fans we gotta be rootiin for Robbie
Mr October is of course
Jackson backs Cano. Unexciting headline, that.
They didn’t have this when I played, and you know I would have been winning more than my share,
We’ll believe it when we see it.
Reggie: I” want a Bosox Yankee final with my Robbie and Gonzo going at it, tell me what could be better #HRDerby
How about a NL batter Mr. Jackson?
Is anyone surprised by this?
Use that player pull to get us in, too!
Yankees vs Red Sox!!! Again. #HRderby
Gonzo putting on a show: “Prince is gonna have to hit a lot!” says @TheRealMattKemp followed by “Don’t worry bout it” from Rickie Weeks.
Captain Obvious and Grateful Teammate: The Super Tweet Duo!
Show me the money National League!
We have $7 if that helps.
We’ll make note of the song requests for next year, though we have nothing to do with it.
Cano is for sure winning this thing. Playoffs 2010 all over again! Glad my ERA isn’t involved #HRderby
We know want to know what each pitcher in the Derby is throwing, ERA-wise. Guesses?
Isn’t he in the Home Run Derby? Oh wait…
Rooting for Adrian to hit some homers. Good Luck Adrian!
Luck may not be a factor in this case, Mr. Bell.
Is there a “Like” button for a tweet?
Rickie: I got faith in Prince, I think he’s gonna blast over 10 this round. #HRDerby
You have to back your…
buddy… biased teammate…captain!
Rickie Weeks in the house — Rickie: It’s really exciting now, Cano and Fielder hit some long ones! Trying to take it all in. #HRDerby
How’s it feel being a spectator, Weeks?
I don’t feel as bad now, Frank Thomas jus told me he hit 3 his first time…lol
Sorry, Kemp. Try out this hash tag: #embarrassing.
Robinson has put on a show #HRDerby
They should throw him water balloons. He would make it rain in right-center field.
My jaw is on the floor on how far Cano is hitting the ball #HRDerby
Someone really should warn the jets coming into Sky Harbor about Cano’s homers.
We need to turn this music up- #HRderby is a PARTY
Well that depends on what’s playing? Enya?
Excited to see who will win this year’s homerun derby.
We all are.
We’re kicking some butt as a team so we can help some kids. That’s all that matters.
Way to keep your eye on the true meaning of the Derby, Mr. Ortiz.
Bad reception slowing me down- but the AL has 3 dudes in the money! #HRderby. Prince has the deepest shots so far but I got Cano winning
Fail whale on Twitter hasn’t helped either.
My dad is with me and I love hanging with the old man.
Baseball is a great family sport. Welcome to Phoenix, Papa Bell.
Reggie Jackson on watching Prince Fielder hit: “Tell the people I have nothing to say but WOW.” #HRDerby
Let up already! We know, he’s a powerhouse.
My god I got goose bumps on how far Fielders ball went!
You don’t need to rub it in.
OK, so we were wrong.
I want Hollidays #HRDerby spikes
Isn’t blue with gold and green a fashion faux-pas?
Swing off- papi ‘s team with a huge edge
We think this wins an appearance in our obvious All-Star game.
Hopefully Prince picks up the NL for us!!!
Aren’t dreams nice?
I’m still in #BEASTMODE, but i was super slow in the Homerun Derby!! Man!!! It’s way harder than it looks!!
Beast mode? Whatever you need to tell yourself to make yourself feel better.
I’m excited to see how far Prince is gonna hit some of these balls! #HRDerby
Maybe he’ll hit some far enough to stop the Arizona fans from booing.
Can we have some of that #SWAG?
Wow… At least he hit more than one… If not, then we would have had a problem… LOL… still #BEASTMODE
How do your words taste?
That ball that was just hit is the reasons why I won’t throw him a strike.
We’ll keep this in mind when throwing BP from now on.
Can’t deny it, the nerves got to me a bit! lets hope for a miracle so i can advance! was a lot of fun though!
We think Kemp is the new word for a Bautista-needed miracle.
You must not be watching closely.
I love this
Hey! So do we!
#HRDerby If it was a game and real pitching then Jose Bautista would have put on a show… Trust Me…
Speaking from experience?
Adrian Gonzalez: What a captain! (Que capitan!)
We would have to agree.
#HRDerby Fifth, Jose Bautista this might be very interesting…
If by interesting you mean crushing a baseball, you’re right.
Solid swing so far.
Man, I’d hate to be the baseball when Rickie Weeks is up. #HRDerby
Would have been good competitor, but he’s not here, so moving on.
Guess I shouldn’t have picked a second baseman … Kidding. That’s my boy Cano! #HRDerby
Sure you were kidding, Ortiz. Sure you were.
Damn… I didn’t think that was going to go down like that but Rickie Weeks did hit some BOMBS tho…
Bombs? Did you see Cano?
Joey Bats is coming up, this could get real good in a hurry!!! I think the Fridays restaurant is in for a hurtin! #HRDerby
Can someone grab us some food? We want to make sure our order gets in before that kitchen gets shelled.
AGon is putting on a pretty good display to lead off the #HRDerby !!!!
Someone is behind the game. That hot dog line must be getting long.
Nope. No shot at understanding that. Comment below if you do!
Are they gonna have web gems during the all star break? That kid needs to be on it! #hrderby
That diving catch was something else.
Why are we booing Ricky? He’s about to bang! #hrderby
There’s a good sport.
Adrian Gonzalez: That ball Robbie hit over the Miller Lite sign should’ve counted for two! #HRDerby
Maybe it earned him a cold one.
Smart dad, there.
Cano-town? Doesn’t have a good ring to it.
It seems the Arizona fans would beg to differ.
Strangling is not the way we would encourage our teammates, but to each his own.
That was ridiculous where he wa hitting those balls #hrderby
Time to pump some iron, Upton.
He also had NORAD on alert with those bombs.
Cano- Ese es el poder Dominicano representando!
OK, we need a translation service.
Cano is hitting bombs #HRDerby
Bombs, missiles, lasers, any other descriptors?
I gotta get my kids to just relax and go watch the home run derby. I’ll be back later.
We’ll miss you. See you in five minutes.
Reece wants to be in the outfield. If I’m on the All-Star team next year, I’ll try to get him out there
Any room for us out there, Bell?
Cano is tagging baseballs right now!! #hrderby
Do you guys think Upton could hit 460?
Nooooo nooooo noooo Cano! Wow 460!
We told you, Bell.
Cano just hit the fan cave. I wanna go to the fan cave
Fan cave? You sure about that one?
If you saw that big bat on ESPN, it’s the only way I can hit a home run
Hence why you were being interviewed and not participating.
I’m rooting for Adrian to win. I think nine will get him to the next round
Nine? It looks like Cano may knock nine straight away.
And he’s checking Twitter!
OMG I hope they don’t see my ball like they do with the gold ball
Someone is getting nervous…
Donde esta mi gente Dominicana!!!!!! Vamo’ arriba que empezamos con Cano!!
We told you we wished we’d paid closer attention in Spanish class.
#HRDerby Second, Matt Holiday’s round reminded me of batting practice… Swinging that stick… He hits the ball hard and far
It may go hard and far, but he’s still four short of Adrian Gonzalez.
This guy really likes Kemp to win it. Who do you think is going to win?
Sweetest swing in the game coming up next #HRDerby
We know, Hanrahan. You think Kemp is going to win it.
Taters? There’s food and homers? Guess we missed out on going to this one. We’ll remember to ask the boss next year.
That’s what I’m talking about. Nice start A-Gon. #HRDerby
Again, players should be telling the other guys, especially those not on Twitter.
I have a feeling this could be a longggg Holliday!!!! #HRDerby
Don’t get too excited, Hanrahan. Everyone’s back to work on Friday.
#Hrderby to Keisha blow is really happening and it’s awesome
We like the event, but maybe not the music choices so much. Sorry, Ke$ha.
Agon with a good showing, Holliday up now, balls carrying good! Time for the NL to represent #HRDerby
Hanrahan should give some advice to the NL batters. AL looks good.
Lol no pressure Adrian! The whole team picked you to win
That’s not pressure at all.
My prediction: I got Matt Holliday winning this whole thing #HRDerby
Sanchez may be the only one with this sentiment.
That was a bomb by Gonzo! #HRDerby
A-Gon doin’ work! http://t.co/uomXvqm
Nice action shot.
Here we go Dominicans – Cha-Ching!
The first gold ball is over the fences.
off to a good start with AGON!! Keep it going!! AL!!
You think it would be better to actually yell to a teammate, but that would ruin the spirit of this thing.
#HRDerby First up, Adrian Gonzalez perfect swing on the first one but still manage to hit the lifeguard by the pool… Lol
What did that lifeguard do to you, Phillips?
Here goes the Mex-Dominican squad. For all my peoples http://t.co/W44d4eX
That line-up is a pitcher’s worst nightmare.
Bryce: Here are my predictions … A-Gonz- 6, Ortiz- 6, Cano- 8, Bautista- 11 … Agree? What do y’all think? #HRDerby
So? What do you all think?
Bryce going Bautista. Pretty risky taking a favorite.
Bryce: Idk about you guys, but I got AL winning it all! Cano, Bautista and A-Gonz sitting right in front of me! #HRDerby
So MLB tweeter Bryce Harper takes the AL…and it begins.
See? Upton would have been a great crowd-friendly addition.
Of course Big Papi is smiling. The NL line-up doesn’t have Upton.
I’m rooting for Kemp, but its tough not to pick Bautista after watching BP….#HRDerby
Another prediction. But Pence already admitted he was late, so how did he catch BP?
A little late getting out to the #HRDerby got caught listening to Puma stories!
It happens to everyone. We know you really got caught in the hot dog line.
Getting ready to watch the derby
Just like us, but we bet you have better seats.
Charity and homers. What’s not to like?
Bautista looking for some fan support. Maybe that locks the win for him?
Time for home runs
Yes. Yes it is.
My pick for the #HRDerby is Adrian.
More predictions. Who do you think wins it?
Wow this place is electric!
Arizona fans getting some appreciation. Nice to see.
We would be “amped” to get the same access. Just saying.
Not one, not two, but three pairs of shoes.
The swag parade begins. Nice kicks.
Also gotta keep it in the NL
Most Arizona fans are hoping the same thing.
To answer about Joey bats, he’s got a lot going on in his swing might get tired, kemp short and compact #HRDerby
Apparently Jose Bautista is an outside shot to win it. We’re not sure if we agree with that one.
Looking forward to see who’s going to win the homerun derby
No predictions. Not even a lot of excitement apparent in this tweet.
The new ASG cleats. http://twitpic.com/5osd67
Fancy kicks, media days and swag. Sign us up to be All-Stars.
Finished snagging for BP, early pick for #HRDerby would be weeks, but I’m taking Kemp
And let the predictions begin…
That locker is bigger than some of our closets.
Another shot from the derby press conference. http://say.ly/OfeuhX
We’ve heard the swarm of reporters was rather impressive. Plus, we were there.
Derby Press Conference http://say.ly/neGuhx
Smile for the camera, Bautista!
I’m pretty stoked about the #HRDerby tonight- I’ll be uploading photos and livetweeting the whole thing from the field
Hey C.J. Wilson, we’re “stoked” too.
Homerun durby tonight http://t.co/QifcYkV
Heath Bell tweeted earlier that he believes he’s the only player who drove to the All-Star game.
Beautiful morning in Phoenix! Time for some breakfast to fuel up for the Derby!
We like when Jose Bautista tweets, because he does it in Spanish and English. Really makes you wish you had paid more attention in Spanish class.
In Arizona for All-Star. Getting ready for the Derby tonight!
Big Papi likely will enjoy himself without having to hit over the Green Monster.
