KANSAS CITY, MO (1660 THE FAN) - Detroit's own Prince Fielder took the win in this year's Home Run Derby, making this his second in four years. He went up against the Toronto Blue Jays' Jose Bautista in the final round, with a score of 12-7. The Tiger hit a total of 28 home runs (five in the first round, 11 in the second and 12 in the final) beating his 2009 score at St. Louis' Busch Satdium by five. He is only the second player in history to win the Derby twice, the first being Ken Griffey Jr. (a three-time champ.) Fielder also hit the longest drive of the evening at 476 feet.
Fielder is #5 in batting order for tomorrow's MLB All-Star Game, playing alongside fellow Tiger Justin Verlander, who will be the starting pitcher for the American League team.
The Tigers are back on 590 AM WKZO Friday evening at 6:40 PM. They take on the Orioles at Oriole Stadium in Baltimore.
