And I'm a go with Miguel
Cabrera.
Even though the last four out of

have an advantage in this
ballpark.
have an advantage in this
they're going to beat him.
Speaker 1: There is a little
advantage going out there and I
feel that I'm going to take
Tuesday or tease it because he
is the man.

produce home runs or outs top
four homerun totals at fans.
Now the totals carry over.
From round one.
In the round to where the same
rules 10 outs swing that doesn't
produce a homerun that's an out.
Top to homerun totals can
advance and.

having fun and warm California
sun Cabrera and Ortiz two of the
best stories this year in
baseball comebacks.
Speaker 2: In different ways.
Speaker 1: Your quote finish
what you said.
I'll show them and here he is.
Miguel Cabrera who had the rough
personal last week when the
Tigers needed most.
They fell out of the playoffs.
He went through.
Rehab himself this offseason.
He's a much better person.
We could see what kind of player
he is.
comeback story.
The best stories and not only
the home run derby but also the
All-Star game show.
Speaker 1: Well when you look at
Miguel Cabrera he has been one
of the best hitters in the game
He came up at an early age and
played and helped more to win
the World Championship and he's
played and helped more to win
In fact I picked him to be the
most viable player in the
American League last year
most viable player in the
to spring training he was in
such great shape.
I felt like he would have a
fabulous year he did have a
I felt like he would have a
But he's doing better this year
he's playing much better this
year and Ortiz Bobby is coming
back as well.
Speaker 2: Absolutely.
David Ortiz nick his middle name
is Jose I hope he's dead now.
It's just a fabulous human
being.
It's just a fabulous human
stuff thrown out.
I mean he was booed.
He was pronounced dead but he
has resurrected his his life in
his career up in Boston.
That team has relied upon him
and he has answered the call.
You've got to love David Ortiz
and the Boston Red Sox the way
they come back from all these
Some of the stories we'll be
talking about tonight and also
tomorrow at the All Star Game we
laid off where the young man.
That's not as well known as
David Ortiz or even Miguel
Cabrera.
And we'll be Chris Young.
26 year old and his fourth full
season 15 homers 61 RBI to 66
for the Arizona Diamondbacks a
young man who was he chose you.
You don't have to be a heralded.
He was a 16th round pick in 2001
by the White Sox.
Young man from Houston.
Here he is.
Speaker 2: Police have it a
really big year.
He loves to play the game.
He could run them down and I
think as John Kruk says he might
have that that lean and mean to
that body.
He might be able to go deep a
few times even though it's 17
feet deeper I believe out there
and left center field.
Three hunters that really tough
him right handers.
Definitely but that's all right.
My God a beer will make it look
small.
He makes every park look small.
So we're underway into his day
farm home run derby for 2010.
Speaker 1: Young having Sydneys
Holland pitch to him.
And let's see if he can get off
to a good start.
Speaker 2: That's the key for a
young guy with someone who was
in this for the first band
getting off to a good start.
Getting that first home run out
of a fifth and.
Then you.
easier.
Speaker 1: And getting used to
easier.
I guess go you know getting a
rhythm.
So it's not rushing and it's not
rushing his swing or the ball
not making it.
Speaker 2: But I liked that he
just getting into it because
look all star game the
surroundings you're leading off
pretty difficult didn't it.
I mean it's a lot of butterflies
kind of.
Speaker 1: I think you have to
have the adrenaline's going.
Your knees are shaking and he
gets off to a good start.
And census one back in the.
Chris Young he's on the board.
And you see him Payton himself
that.
He.
Got that first and that's the
one I'm looking for.
It's not going to be you know
Now.
You know Sal he's ready in 0 7
he was the first rookie to have
a 30 Homer twenty five stolen
base season so.
Speaker 2: I don't Ana you
He got into this one a little
bit.
So.
We'll.
Member any ball.
Swung on.
That doesn't go into the park.
It is an.
Was.
they know him.
Well that one's ripped but that
will.
Not get out of there to home
runs against the Cubs.
LDS for Arizona to help.
Arizona advance that's going to
be foul.
So very quickly.
Five outs Chris Young you get
10.
And.
Now need to slow down and I
think that's what you're doing.
Take a couple of pitches and.
Find your rhythm.
Speaker 1: Because you're coming
Mike right.
I mean to slow down.
Yes.
B.B. pitcher.
Believe me.
too.
You don't usually throw a V.P.
with every when it hits the
Haiti of watchin and all.
All the money on the one.
Hand.
Speaker 2: Man everyone in so
mean some BP you want to give
him the tough curveballs on the
outside corner right Bobby.
Speaker 1: Well you usually laid
what I expect.
You know what guys to feel good
because they could go into a
slump in a hurry.
Yeah.
You know what's interesting
run derby.
The last round of batting
practice most teams players play
home run derby that last.
Round.
But now they've got to do it on
a big stage.
Big states no smoke cage round.
I think that really makes a big
difference.
You know use the hit batting
practice.
Speaker 2: Now you're standing
You don't have the helmet on
either.
Oh he just got underneath that
He's got to get moving.
He's got three outs to deal with
though.
To get Heidi the low ball hitter
he's making all those high
balls.
He knows what he's doing.
Ernie.
Still patient enough I like
that.
Chris.
All right.
All.
Speaker 1: Right.
Ball is in there now so maybe
this is when he sees the golf
ball better John.
Speaker 2: We'll see.
There you see Vernon Wells
mentally preparing himself for
that.
BALL OF WHERE.
The ball is burning.
Gold.
In.
homer.
He's down to your final out.
And.
Speaker 1: He's underneath that.
Well I got one.
Speaker 2: So Chris Young and
the Arizona Diamondbacks gave it
a shot these couple of days will
certainly be a big throw for
him.
He wanted to do a little better
but.
He was entity gave it a shot.
Not me.
Speaker 1: Pitching his own this
season hasn't the guy so maybe
even in batting practice getting
the same way.
We'll go chronologically how
good as you follow him and who
has been 15 and one good year.
Not to mention no hitter first
one in Rockies history from 70
Dallas Braden.
Get off of my mound perfect
game.
Roy Halladay.
Perfect game.
in any imperfect game Armando
Galarraga had it.
We all know what happened.
The bottom line is you don't see
one of these a perfect game once
every blue moon.
rly last year two perfect
games this year almost three.
Tell us it's a pitching season
what's happening Joe.
Speaker 2: Well I actually
hitters had an advantage using
the video and watching how to
pitch a fit for them.
the video and watching how to
pitchers are making better use
of video now and finding the
hitters weaknesses and it seems
like everyone has a game plan
when they walk out on the mound.
Speaker 1: Now I couldn't agree
with you more Joe and I think
you're throwing more pitches now
and I think the information is
getting to the pitchers a little
more than the hitters say they
have more time to study as you
say in the video but also study
their own mechanic.
Speaker 2: So they're throwing
the ball extremely well.
96 is is kind of regular.
Here comes Vernon Wells.
Now.
He got off to a big start for
the Blue Jays and will this
carry enough.
You mean an hour before I asked
him who's going to pitch.
which is not what I wanted to
hear on my selection.
So very quick two outs Vernon is
a one of a quiet player in
Toronto.
a one of a quiet player in
this year.
Third time an all yes I bought.
His.
Way back to.
Get out.
Well this one.
Will.
Might have had a videotape
replay see where.
We got one.
No replay we've got one at 360
one young man from high school.
With the high school in
Back in 1997.
His dad was a wide receiver for
the CFL Calgary Stampeders
absolutely fabulous athlete can
run can run them down in the
outfield at one of the greatest
sports artists in our country.
That wonderful job his dad does
portraits and sports.
Sports art.
But I'm hoping that his son can
be a home run artist.
So far only one and that it
looks like he's under that.
A little too m
It's.
Happening fast up here already
six hours it seems like not even
his patient is the youngster
young.
It is the year of the pitcher
well.
Maybe.
I'll stick with Graham McDowell.
He may have a better chance.
Vernon's going out of here
quickly.
Well again this was not guys
their first time in this.
Home Run Derby.
And I think they're getting a
little excited just a little.
Slower and they're ready to hit.
That line and get back back back
back back back.
Hey.
I think.
So I can still do something's
got to the leader in the
clubhouse.
Note that the average home run
in the major league this year is
three hundred and ninety six
feet nine inches.
I meant's those some long
ball.
Yes that's.
That's a big fly.
Ball ball is in with one out to
go Vernon Wells.
Looks like a great.
One.
Right.
Loses.
It now.
That's the big area this
ballpark left center field.
So Vernon got to.
All.
My ball he had.
Three.
Long when that one was for 28.
Norma and I said the average
home run is 3 9 6 and that was
for 28 for Vernon.
Speaker 1: He wasn't patient
he's only 18 pitches.
I mean.
Speaker 2: You know and like him

We love Joe.

Speaker 2: On how we look in
But we did get an interesting
look pretty good in here and you
got kind of like the lone angel
over there.
Speaker 1: The loan into the
lone angel tree hunter that told
this entire ballpark that you
wanted David Ortiz to win.
The guy just got booed during
introductions.
Poppy when.
Speaker 2: Oh well definitely
because of the boards.
But I know that it's hard for
writing to really hit home runs
and I really want somebody from
American league to win us or.
Have the big David Ortiz and
he's one of my favorite
teammates of all time.
And I'll sign it we're still
buddies we're like brothers.
And I'll sign it we're still
The key.
Speaker 1: Hitting a bombing is
safe.
Hitting the ball out of his is.
The key is.
Swing hard.
Just in case you hit it out at
lot of writers and for the
players that play here the is as
lot of writers and for the
You got the marine layer thick
air at night as a little cool.
Sort of bottom floor.
So whenever we play a day game
everybody is swinging for the
fences.
fly.
But at night no.
Speaker 2: I know Poppy's God
Thanks to her.
for him.
Yeah because our Robin he knows.
Thanks I appreciate it.
Hunter.
Who can play center field with
the face of a Mrs. Corey Hart.
Thank you.
Corey Hart No.
He draws his on the board.
So they're talking about
teammates.
For those who forget a poppy
once upon a time it's win
obviously.
Biggest mistake sorry Hunter
made letting him leave.
The.
Speaker 1: Market.
Corey Hart.
You got to have heart.
Prince Fielder one of the last
year brewers you probably gave
the good vibes to him.
Corey you won a game in the
against Pittsburgh with a
homerun for the Brewers and
obviously he's taking that swing
to hard.
Speaker 2: And he's doing it to
Fallon Well what he's doing is
keeping his rhythm by staying in
the right center.
Back through the middle and he's
not pulling off.
Corey Hardy.
Kentucky is pulling him out of
here.
When Albert Pujols was at his
best in the Home Run Derby he
was hitting ball at the right
center that keeps you on the
ball a little bit longer and you
can get the bug and deeper in
batting practice.
can get the bug and deeper in
in a groove.
So yes one bad.
Heaven forbid he made it out.
Corey got that ball you know two
years ago.
He was the last man in here with
twenty one home runs among the
major league leaders.
Well.
Speaker 1: Just missed it.
We talked about 30 miles just at
a moment ago.
His.
Corey saw his son.
His dad was a great softball
player if I would.
Corey says he said I watched him
yet.
Well.
Not different hitting the
softball to hit.
Number three.
Corey Hart with six homers just
three outs Sandy Guerrero the
hitting coach for the Nashville
Sounders.
Pitching to Corey 6 foot 6 Yes
and this one is quite frank back
back back back back back.
Speaker 2: I really liked the
get sad and not rushing him at
all they have a really good
career that's going room four
outs and plenty to go.
Speaker 1: You came up there and
was doing Joe but definitely by
staying back to the middle he
got his rhythm.
staying back to the middle he
Does this have enough just to
get.
Speaker 2: Things some of them
Man there's a little breeze
going Joe but not much really
good.
So much for that marine layer
homeboys.
Speaker 1: Sitting in the
shadows.
This one is.
64.
La.
Didn't I say.
I think Cory heard at the
beginning of the show.
I I said or.
10 homers for three hard.
Speaker 2: Eleven.
Then.
He's pretty soon peppering the
five and.
I think he's g
It he's got a chance to get it
get to the ground.
He's always someone that puts on
a show that you don't.
Speaker 1: Really anticipate
coming into the park.
Speaker 2: Well you know he's
home so there is a little
anticipation isn't there.
Yeah.
Speaker 1: Well homers it
doesn't.
Do we have a baker's dozen.
Out number six.
Twice as many homers in our.
Start for Corey Hart of the
Brewers and we should say it
like Prince Fielder last year
the Milwaukee Brewers have a
great deal for their.
Home.
Hits.
There's a couple of games that
they've designated you take off
a dollar.
Speaker 2: For each Homer from
which are 40 bucks in the low
outfield seats which are 30
bucks all the homers city hits
today.
They're not a couple of games
you can start flying tomorrow.
So last year when Prince r
had all the homers tickets were
like five bucks.
So.
the Brewers fan.
And.
Fall into four yard.
Twelve homers Lansdowne.
This is really a show and I
think Nick Smith.
Wow.
You know I guess we should have.
Given him a little more.
Consideration because.
Since May 15th at.
Than anyone else in Major League
Well that makes thirty one.
Speaker 1: Standing ovation for
What a job.
Of.
A.
Speaker 2: We've got real good
balance at the plate he doesn't
oversee right he's not over
swinging.
He started off by hitting both
the left.
And I think that kept him.
From pulling off and kept him
from swinging too hard.
So great job.
And a great game plan.
By Corey Hart.
Last five homers were all over
450 feet.
How about that.
Ryan Braun his teammates brewers
who is positive pretty well in
the home run derby couple of
years ago.
There he is getting firm getting
off the back side.
Wonderful follow through.
Wonderful flick.
Speaker 1: Was an obvious
a home run derby game.
We explore and evaluate those
differences with our sports
science team and John Branca is.
A badass arms and shoulders are
like coiled springs.
Speaker 2: Loaded with potential
energy as the swing progresses
more and more energy is
converted to kinetic energy
hitting the ball later in the
swing results in a faster bat
speed.
At the moment of contact.
Speaker 1: And bat speed is the
single most important factor in
hitting for distance.
Our data reveals that a bad
moving sixty five miles an hour
at a 60 mile an hour pitch.
Can send the ball flying.
Four hundred feet.
Hitting the ball pitch five
miles an hour faster.
Only travels.
Five feet farther.
But increase the swing speed by
five miles an hour on that 60
mile an hour pitch.
In the ball will sail.
About 25 feet farther.
Nearly five times the five foot
difference of hitting a faster
pitch.
It's mainly about momentum.
Speaker 2: Which is a product of
mass and velocity.
A 31 ounce bat.
Over six times more momentum
than a five ounce ball.
Which is why swing speed is much
more important.
Than.
Speaker 1: Its speed.
In the home run equation.
Speaker 2: To put that in
In the home run derby in Angel
Stadium the difference between
hitting the warning track and
going yard over the fence and
left center three hundred eighty
seven feet away could come down
to a swing speed difference of
only half a mile an hour.
For sports science on ESPN I'm
John breaks.
Speaker 1: John thank you very
much.
Speaker 2: Well here's a guy
days almost.
Alex Rodriguez congrations
on another All-Star selection.
Sure.
Welcome back to the game.
We've gotten comfortable.
Yet.
right.
So this is a reunion for us.
Speaker 1: Thank you.
Good to be here.
Spea2: Exciting to see all
these great guys hitting home
Spea2: Exciting to see all
What happened.
Trying to get a little healthier
over the last two or three weeks
feeling stronger and healthier
and working on the morning for
my.
Work and stuff.
And.
I'm feeling better and I'll tell
you.
Speaker 1: The care is getting
you.
Well l see if Nick Swisher
can get.
Bill is.
right.
Well I said this.
If he goes over and.
Rolls over in the first three
swings he might have an open.
Fire.
But if he goes and has two or
three home runs early on we may
have a.
Well he did a group that was in
fact.
Brought.
Bat here.
The.
That is the right handed bat in
case he's not hitting.
Lieutenant maybe he'll jump over
on the right.
Maybe he's a little
superstitious but we have Tony's
he sees every day.
Jesus they say.
Well.
Speaker 1: A little light to
your clubhouse when I'm sure
know.
I mean he's been a.
Breath of fresh air for our team
bringing a lot of energy.
He comes ready to play every day
and comes in with a smile on his
face comes in loud and you know
what I like most.
face comes in loud and you know
We love to win.
And he likes the Pies right.
He knows all that stuff.
Speaker 2: So let me ask you
He knows all that stuff.
watch Nick.
He knows all that stuff.
Barry Bonds.
Sammy.
Babe Ruth.
Sammy Sosa hit Griffey.
600 homers.
You've.
Just a few off.
To.
You.
Do you grasp what that is.
I certainly do.
But I mean I tell you first for
me.
It's f the perspective that
I get from where I was when I
hit 500 and where I am today
when when I'm about to.
Hit 600.
Speaker 1: I'm in a much better
I'm enjoying the game a lot
I feel like I'm a better team
mate.
I think overall I'm just
enjoying the game.
And you know what's funny about
the home runs is.
You know the biggest homerun
that hit in my career I don't
even count.
Towards.
Six hundred.
I hit him last year in the
postseason.
Championship.
So it's just great it feels good
to be in a good place and I
think finally.
I found my niche in New York.
And I'm having a good time
playing ball.
Well you throw a lot of lot of
us a lot of people for a long
time and.
us a lot of people for a long
number by the way.
Look at that number.
Or twenty point five.
Now 16.
Three.
How is your defense it's been
terrific to hear your back it
looks like he's very comfortable
with that.
Making a lot of great plays.
We've seen.
Those great plays the.
Doesn't collect.
Who.
Offense.
your defense and others.
Right.
Back.
On.
My back team is built around
kitchen and power but the one
thing that goes.
On talked about sometimes is our
good defense and we're.
Very big on fundamentals.
Joe Girardi preaches
fundamentals from day one has
been training.
And the one thing that helps.
Me and my otteammates I mean
we have Robby Cano we have Derek
Jeter but Mark Teixeira first
base.
I mean he is back and playing
over there and he helps us out
and we just throw the ball with
so much confidence and the
diamond.
And once my successor got that I
mean you had that with John with
the Mets.
Exactly.
It's such an important position
and my six year I just I can't
say enough great things about it
not only what he brings
defensively.
Switch it in the middle of our
lineup but what he brings to our
clubhouse.
Speaker 2: He's phenomenal he's
spent some time with his
splintered terrific guy and the
range at the base is what you
don't get when you throw it it
doesn't have to be down the
middle.
He does that at the corners.
He'll he'll help you out east
west north and south.
Not only that Bobby but he goes
after five balls so well.
He does it for me 6 1 double
play.
Speaker 1: 3 6 3 double play and
play.
us.
He's made a le to play so so
good.
Well next get two outs to go
he's got four homers which I
mean for the moment moves him
ahead of.
Vernon Wells and Chris Young but
you need a couple of more to
get.
Any sort of wiggle room.
Moving.
Forward and that'll bring on the
gold ball.
That's pumped up.
First round pick of Oakland back
in 2002.
His dad.
You guys remember you played
against him maybe.
Absolutely.
against him maybe.
Tubbs C. Lewis San Diego.
Great baseball man.
Speaker 2: Hear.
So good ball for Nick.
What do you think.
I hope so.
I know that make probably slept
I'm so excited for his home run
derby.
And he's talked about it for the
I'm hoping he has a couple more
here I like it is the fan votes
and he's the last guy to be
selected he goes home run derby
piling on.
selected he goes home run derby
To.
JACK IN.
THIS.
NOT.
Yesterday by.
Play but he does it with a smile
on his face.
Play but he does it with a smile
The first one that he fell
backwards.
Awesome.
Speaker 1: He worked.
Well the one thing that he does
look at the balance he stays
behind the ball very well.
And that helps him to elevate
the ball when he makes the
And that helps him to elevate
Speaker 2: That hand backs in
the hand steps away from his
hands and drives it well.
So the Yankees on the board
there for the fourth spot.
Alex you know when the home run

Albert Pujols was always a great
pleasure.
Yes.
Oh he can he would.
He can get to know him under.
Well this is a big one because
it's way back to left center.
To.
Speaker 1: Which it doesn't
change.
Vernon Wells is no.
Poppy Harlow she's getting ready
my holiday.
Speaker 2: Doing it with a golf

So all of a sudden.
Speaker 1: Those homers may
have gotten him into a position
breaking just advance.
Well he's ptist one.
Way back.
Just so he can get his timing
didn't throw it that step.
Didn't swing.
Speaker 2: And block.
he's he's.
He's not faking ane Bobby.
As they say in Canada.
He put that ball.
On holiday.
That puts him in the second
place.
Behind Corey.
Yeah.
But that was a big little run
that he has a.
Nice room with the gold balls.
To go from one.
So he passes Nick Swisher.
One of those in forward.
Seven feet for.
Speaker 1: Now.
We told you warming up late
maybe he needs to just get a
little warm.
Well kind of like his season he
started off slowly and then he
got hot.
Speaker 1: That's upstairs with
the big boy his cup of coffee
generates all his bad his hips
opens his hips gets his hands

runs as the.
.
A.
rld Series.

Speaker 2: Welcome back
Not far off the road.
The 2010 SBA pnted by
Capital One the Castrol Edge is

Gillespie's big fans of the
year's best plays biggest upsets
most outstanding performances
across all sports.
Do you have.
The feeling.
Speaker 1: That this is a we're
going to show you this first big
poppy last year.
Now what's wrong and Big Poppy
sitting eighty eight below the
Mendoza line.
Since.
Twenty seven homers changed all
that.
Came back a little bit at the
Speaker 2: A lot of people
wondered Was it done.
How do you let him go.
How do you let him go.
And what we missed.
Was like a heavyweight fighter
walking into the ring riding.
Right.
Warmed up down below.
He took his time walking out
there was more like the.
OK.
This is my stay.
This is what I do.
with his back.
And look at those shoe
That's what I'm I'm excited
about those shoes.
Go.
You know what else.
Forget that Yankee Red Sox thing
Tony Fania pitching to both
Swisher and a big poppy.
Forget it.
This is a country thing not a
Correct.
team.
Yes indeed.
Speaker 1: So it almost looks
I don't know.
Looks like it looks like this
padding so you foul one off.
Look at that.
Technology.
Love it for the last five years.
A lefty has won this thing and
we're going to break that trend
right.
This year with.
The go for broke.
Wow.
Speaker 2: Poppy got a center
field alone off often get enough
of that.
Aw.
Wow.
Yeah.
Speaker 1: Wow.
Didn't look like it right but
then again it's big poppy.
And when the big guys hit him
they continue to go.
They continue to fly.
know exactly why he couldn't
wait to be in this thing.
One of the guys the veteran home
run hitter is you know he's done
it it's tiring it takes a lot of
he et cetera especially if he
keep advancing with everybody
questioning a big poppy that
ball out here.
Speaker 1: On.
Oh yeah.
There are still sooubting
Thomas is out there.
He wants his show.
He's the best of the best.
He is such a face for peace not
only for Boston for baseball
comes he's happy he's playing a
game but he's business right
now.
Back back back back back back
back back.
Big.
Three's.
Speaker 2: With him.
He's got a hit.
Speaker 1: Not showing any sign
of nervousness.
Speaker 2: That falls away.
Going to take it easy and get
that big that he wants.
That was.
Great.
that pitch up that we thought.
Yeah.
Why.
Don't.
Speaker 1: We all agree again.
He'd been the praise but let's
not forget when you talk about
clutch hitters of this
generation of baseball are in
his day right.
Right.
His name is gonna be right in
Speaker 2: Right.
Right.
Not just in relation to any
generation.
What he has done in the late
innings of ball game and that's.
What make.
It.
What make.
Yeah well let you.
Pick up a more we will see Poppy
in the final.
If he gets a couple more.
there isn't anybody Bobby that
would say to you.
No way it was a no play.
They actually did.
TV.
He could be nervous.
I came to meet two men you know.
Funding.
For homers big pop just.
He walked up there like a heavy
hitter.
You're right.
Yes.
This is his third and.
He's.
Speaker 1: Speaking very
quickly.
Think of all the great hitters.
The history of the Red Sox
franchise.
I mean we don't have to go
through the names but certainly
with Jimmy fox and a great
later.
Jimmy Fox and William.
Moran was on it for a while and
he adds of course we go on and
earn no money in Red Sox
history.
straight years other than.
And not only that when.
When.
Babe played in Boston he was
George.
Yeah.
He became the babe.
Yeah.
Yeah.
He was George Herman.
Speaker 2: In Boston.
That's what he wants and he
wants us both down there.
Need level down there where he
can launch.
This day fair.
They both keep the ball down.
He doesn't like the ball up and
Yeah if he gets one more I'm
going to put.
Okay.
Little D'Angelo is pulling for
him.
Six hours sitting he went up
there he taking his time he's
measured the whole thing out.
Joe.
He's a veteran.
Like I say so many young players
are excited to be in this
contest and it shows a little
bit.
And you really have to have
presence Joe and you're standing
up there as you said no screen
and that's that other one
you're.
To get to.
stay there.
You don't rest.
Give me the spotlight make it
brighter I'm gonna clap my hands
a while on the big poppy and
you've gotta be special to wear
those shoes.
In public.
No.
Need.
To.
Think about the.
Other kids out there.
Until the ball hits by David
Ortiz.
Until the ball hits by David
Speaker 1: How cool is that.
As long as they catch the buyer
is getting back I understand.
It must mean some kind of tryout
to this Muslim or pretty good
little athlete.
to this Muslim or pretty good
doing and they're getting hurt.
One to 10.
Are in early that.
Might carry.
A move.
Speaker 2: Okay.
Well all of a sudden the wind
change and it's actually blowing
a little bit toward right field.
Blowing out the left a little
bit earlier.
Exactly.
Here's a guy that because he
plays at Fenway Park certainly
knows how to hit the home runs
the left center field into the
street or.
What was the screen you know
into the monster seats but here.
Speaker 1: We go back to just
pulling the ball right because
it's right it's a long way to go
to left center here and big
coffee's not having anything of
it it sends it back back.
That's.
I take it you didn't ask for a
title I thought he might have
said that Tony is getting
hungry.
Instead of that one.
Story I know he's leaving now
to.
Raise.
Speaker 2: It.
We're going to put on this show
I need you know.
I'm going in my corner.
I love it.
See who has the presence to say
no.
Well I get like an hour or to
laugh and I'm gonna have a drink
right.
Well you gotta be special again
if you're going to wear those
kind of shoes in public.
You feel special about yourself.
And that's good.
Vladimir Guerrero he won.
The.
Home Run Derby in San Francisco
he's the only righty to win in
the last five years.
here.
Former angel he's having a
pretty darn good year right.
Speaker 1: Well he would say so.
fabulous career and you never
tell a great player he's
fabulous career and you never
make baseball gold.
Speaker 1: Ball now for Big
Papi.
Who's next to Corey Hart's 13
homers has the most with a.
Thousand off.
his day to get that.
Matter of.
enough shape that we know he's
moving on right.
We'll see Big Papi and.
Corey hard in the next round
because the defense for Vance.
Speaker 1: Hanley Ramirez Miguel
Cabrera the only ones left here
he is down the line fellas.
Well.
The good thing is when he for
the ball he didn't book it.
It didn't look bad.
He didn't hit one by one run on
the right goal line that tells
you that it was right on target
and look at that lot different
than Matt holidays.
He uses his upper body strength.
I mean he's just so strong.
That he kind of muscles the ball
out of the ball park where.
We saw holiday with a smoother
swing.
You see David our team beat
really a tax.
Holiday in the distance tracker
says for twenty five.
So.
Big.
Clamping put on a show.
Here's a call.
That puts on a different story.
I'm really disappointed in the
low key jacket.
Well I was looking for the
burgundy jacket tomorrow.
And you know I mean I do well.
Thyou.
Local boy in your home park.
Yeah I know.
I grew up coming to Angels game
this year.
And.
Like I said I was here in 79
when the.
Angels clinched for the first
time and so this is this is
pretty amazing.
Well hence the locals a look
right there.
Mr. ravage rich Bobby seven year
rich.
right.
Yeah but so what's what gives
here.
He's just your favorite angel.
Well he would just look at that
intensity.
How.
Come.
Look he's fighting through wood.
Well I'll give it up.
Get it.
You were smart enough to pick a
second baseman.
Well do you like in his home run
king and got that.
But I've been looking at.
I.
Think.
Looks pretty smooth.
Right.
He's smooth.
Go ahead.
long ago to go to rehab he still
recording albums.
He had the absentee votes have
not come in.
OK.
A big baseball fan.
Angels.
And now here we go with Hanley
Ramirez.
Hanley Ramirez.
Who is starting to shrink.
Twenty six and we've started
straight years.
This doesn't happen all the time
that's for sure.
That's pretty nice.
You.
No I love baseball.
Like I say.
You.
Follow the.
Game pretty avidly.
And.
I was down in the dugout and
Hank Aaron walked by.
I don't know if you guys heard
of him.
Somewhat of a legend his his
tallies his have been counted
seven 70.
Right.
Exactly.
know in the movie.
How would you have done as a
sportscaster.
Well what do you think.
I would have.
You know.
I.
Would've been drunk on air.
So.
Well.
You know it wouldn't be the
first.
OK.
I would I would have I would
have done OK.
I would I would have I would
harder than it looks.
Speaker 1: That's what I keep
telling people that you guys
Speaker 1: That's what I keep
Want to call a couple of
different Valentine.
It's hard for me that I learn
and learn and well every day
it's a racket.
You know.
Speaker 2: Every day it gets
tougher.
How ahead you get Hanley Ramirez
up here and what do you think
What a wonderful feeling.
Yes.
He's got that splitter right.
Well I've always wanted to ask.
Guess what time it is.
Homerun o'clock.
You're on home run a clock.
All right go ahead.
always wanted to ask you
what is your favorite.
Movie what's the favorite.

swing never seen a young man who
led the league in hitting and
has a fabulous.
Power factor.

question I was wondering if I

movie.
It's got to be anchorman.
OK.
Perfect.
All.
Right.
But.
I'm going to agree with but I'm
lucky because I've gotten to.

came up with the Marlins.
Speaker 2: It is a similar
approach to twin Joe don't you
think you're going to see that
coming up real soon.
Well the key is they're both a
lot bigger than you think they
are.
You know we look at handler
Ramirez playing shortstop and we
don't realize how big or
individually strong with a good
athlete what a career and he's
still here.
He's still pumping him out of
here.
Way back back back back.
I mean.
He's hitting the hardest ball as
a jumping off his.

There he is.
I mean.
These are not shock.

the bubble.
The goalkeeper needs five to
tie.
We love a swing off.
I'll explain it if we need to.
Hit it six to advance.
You know.
They were asking Hank Aaron.

home runs and he told Reggie
Jackson no.
So he had seven hundred fifty
And he hit a little.

you hit 3 0 1.
Well that was the year and his
Triple Crown still when it hit
20 at the top he was more in the
three twenty.
Three third one I think what has
happened with.
His old saying goes we've got
the other guys when the year the
pitcher going on and the better
hitters are going to lead the
league in hitting.
And homerun.
Speaker 2: And they only found

All-Star games he's appeared in
four of them before with
All-Star games he's appeared in
's been in right field he's
been a left field he's in third
base is a pinch hitter now he's
going to first base Sydney he'll
pitch and catch.
You do everyg else Kenny.
But when he first came out with
glory you know as a third
baseman.
And I did.
Speaker 2: I never figured he
would stay and look at his third
base.
That's almost torance.
OK.
Guys.
You know why.
He was torn.
He's no good.
Speaker 1: Twenty four hasn't
done that.
All right.
Can he really.
Cincinnati Reds in blood you Joe
not only.
Tony for us.
24 was at the Marlins a little
bit for guidance.
But he's from the same hometown
in Venezuela as your shortstop

for home runs many of the tape
measure varieties and he's
patient to Hank.
You.
Get into that.
Big Poppy's watch and he's with
Erin Andrews Erin.

about the power right now that
Miguel Cabrera has out there
Four hundred and sixty nine feet

Speaker 1: So he doesn't get hit
by a ball them.
Well I chip responsibility first
Erin.
But you're a big poppy said
Browder having fun and let
people see that we're having
That's what he does.
fun.
That's what he does he's a great
ambassador.
when he comes and lights up the
stadium when he's at the plate
and he's having fun today.
But he's also showing people
that.
He's an all star who is dead at
the end of April.
Yes.
So what do we release him.
Well hey how you doing.
How do you thousand ninety two
thousand twenty eight.
It's time to go you're 55 years
old like Joe says when he says.
You.
Read.
Well that.
already in the second round
because he's passed.
tt Holliday course the total
because it's a holiday will be
gone now but the totals.
Carry over to the second round.
So this is not.
Well why would he keep hitting.
No no no no.
I need these because the
aggregate first and second round
get you to the finals the top
two.
This does not quite have enough
law.
How about the ball get off.
Speaker 2: The ball when we're
on the phone it was floating up
there.
It was floating in the pot.
It was part of Stonehenge.
Oh.
My.
Speaker 1: Lord.
Seventy six feet and that's
where it landed right Chris.
Speaker 2: That is the
projection of where it would
Speaker 2: That is the
Well this one.
Has a helicopter up there and it
almost heads.
Great swing.
Great Power.
Cannot pick them.
What you're doing pretty good so
far.
We've got a contest down.
Let me say I mean he is the most
accomplished in the purest
hitter.
Of all these guys.
Mean it's 21 years.
So I mean he was beautiful.
Did you have.
I think Pop.
Pop.
You're still in.
My lap.
Every member I pick.
I remember I picked that guy
from Milwaukee on the
I remember I picked that guy
So.
Why didn't.
We know anything about Joe
Hockey.
Oh I don't know.
by a German guy.
Speaker 1: That's what you stand
for guys.
And he gets if we get there yet.
I didn't say Stanford.
I said stand by with Jamie.
To those people down here down
the road from some of us in the
Nutmeg State and Country state
Stanford Connecticut the land of
steady habits and much more.
Joe Cabrera he has been studying
all sorts of steady.
Hits under that boy and a little
bit.
Mr.s under that boy and a little
Speaker 2: Let's hear it for.
Go cover.
Hey hey hey I thought you know.
Well Cabrera is like.
Speaker 1: An they married in
the upper body and lower body
heat in his hand.
You get everything coordinated
and he hits it a flash.
So McGill Cooper hits enough.
He'll be in a whole ball.
He's has the least.
Of the four.
He has seven big poppy is eight.
And the Ramirez nine.
For her third team.
What about these swings though.
For 76.
How about that.
The rock pile.
Holiday in distance tracker says
you know what.
We don't have a tape measure
that long.
And here it is the way he gets
firm like Joe is saying get this
off the back.
But.
What a wonderful sleigh.
What a wonderful player.
We're going to watch this for a
long time to come.
All right.
Here's our results in that
holiday inn and Nick Swisher and
Bernard whereas Chris Young

order you go in descending
order.
But since Miguel Cabrera Justin
you're gonna give me a breather
Big Papi said No problem.
So David Ortiz with a Miguel
Cabrera with seven Hanley
Ramirez with nine.
Speaker 1: And it is possible
though improbable career minded
enough to hit and even move to
the finals because it's the
total of the two rounds that
advance the top two of these
four.
Well I'm betting he's going to
have to hit.
Speaker 2: I know he's gonna
Call it a hunch.
Target they keep.
Speaker 1: Two people still born
with it can get over this.
I understand the Red Sox have
had the Angels number except for
the last time out in the
postseason.
putting on a show and always a
chance to do it again.
Tony one of the great stories
here in this all star game and I
just want to put it might give
here in this all star game and I
stories in a while.
Arthur Rhodes making the all
star team at 40 the flame
throwing left hander set up man
for Dusty Baker.
Cincinnati Reds first ball start
to.
At 40.
After surgery and a couple of
years ago was Poppy not quite
caused the death of his young
son a couple of years ago and
persevered.
son a couple of years ago and
nice better than nice.
Yeah.
It's a lesson for a lot of big
poppy fighting the airwaves
again.
To.
Right center field and it's gone
Independents as.
You.
Know.
Speaker 2: Or underrated for him
enough.
I don't need to do that.
Wow.
Way back to right center field.
It is back and.
Speaker 1: Every once in a while
leg and he gets it down with the
bat started perfectly.
And that was one of those.
Speaker 2: All about that rhythm
and the timing.
Yeah.
Center for.
Him.
Yeah he missed it.
me.
fourth.
He missed it the dry.
He throws that one out of here.
Well Sloan rose up.
He has something.
You know what amazes an emotion
guy.
That's on its way to.
But.
You know it's amazing.
We haven't seen any foul ball.
Think about it Ramsey.
Know what it tells you that
these guys know more about what
they're doing now than they did
before.
Yeah.
They're saying.
You know up.
diamond.
Not.
And that's.
the middle of the bleep.
That ball in on a military we
get as I said and drove four
hundred seventy eight so five in
this round for.
I'm just telling you the way he
came out.
Like a heavyweight prize fighter
the first time we really didn't
see we wanted to chronicle is
you know his slow start the last
two years and then.
Pilot.
Speaker 1: Who knows him like
But if this is any indication
how old 300 his teammate back
when they were young punks with
the twins seeing him on.
Oh and this is down the line
it's.
This is the guy to their.
If you ask him that.
Prior to take over first place
skate wow with this you dirty.
Speaker 2: Man.
the right field.
Go.
See your red.
Speaker 1: Light gives him a
total of fifty seven runs out in
this round eight in the first
round seven thus far.
Well this is drilled.
Just.
To see these guys doing they're
putting all the weight on once
you get it out of the gate goes
to the back foot and they put
all the lead on the front foot
when he does Herm who ends that
front foot they're coming off of
the back foot almost.
Every sling.
To transfer and then and.
Speaker 2: Then they translate
that energy back foot the front
foot up through the back of the
wonderful playing this game.
Poetry in motion.
Yes.
back back down again.
Gave it to.
Four hours.
Wow.
tell you about their Joe
windfall right.
Yeah.
I'm.
Tired.
Well what happens when they
shows that their character
they're not using their leg.
shows that their character
I agree totally.
He didn't look too tired to me a
window.
Yes window just a little window
you know.
Yeah just a little out of his
rhythm.
One Hopper off the line he goes
and he's Israeli and find out he
had a long way together.
He was.
Speaker 1: Away.
Speaker 2: I remember the guy
thrown at him as one of the
greatest armies in the history
of baseball Tony Bennett.
Yeah.
So guys out harder than Joe
Hagen trying to steal from his
knees.
Hagen trying to steal from his
you know what he did right.
He tried.
I said try.
You know when I saw him at 90 at
double Eastern League 20 years
for the Buffalo face throwing
out guys from his knees he's an
18 year old.
Speaker 1: Robbie I said I'm no
scout I'm no scout.
Yes but this guy is better and
everybody else in the league got
to compete.
You knew then you know now.
Well we have a big lefty sitting
down next to us.
Speaker 2: Who's watching of big
lefty big coffee go to work and
that'll be Ryan and Howard too.
Wait a minute.
What is.
Put him in your zone a little
bit right.
Who's won a home run.
You know what it takes to be a
It takes a lot of stamina.
man.
That's.
Everybody is out there for him
on the.
Set.
Speaker 2: Well you won it in 0
What was your key.
Speaker 2: Well you won it in 0
In Pittsburgh.
You know.
The biggest piece of advice that
I got was from.
Lance Berkman in the very
beginning where he told us not
to.
Speaker 1: See you go out there
and swing at every pitch every
day.
You know take your time in
between that.
And so on the like the first six
say Yeah I do.
Speaker 2:ctly.
How about this show that you
left big hockey is putting on
here the federal.
Man.
Did I ser him.
To be able to come out here for
this home run derby.
To be able to come out here for
Right at home not right out
right at home the spotlight out
in L.A.
So.
He wouldn't have it any other
way.
Got the family got the thread
got the teammates.
Out.
though he's definite.
Rhythm ballads.
Very strong man right.
You hit so many long home runs
but when you sit and you're
watching poppy or Cabrera hit it
off the rock pile.
I mean I know you get it over
there.
But.
When you're sitting here
watching this thing you become a
fan.
I mean when you sit here you
watch guys doing.
What they're doing right now.
Speaker 1: And I've been up
there.
So I'm what it takes to see guys
getting to the ball and just
kind of put a charge into.
This is awesome to watch.
Speaker 2: This one.
Yes I'm like that.
You coulpreciate that.
Everybody watches being here and
congratulations on another all.
Game.
Thank you very much.
eciate I want to ask you.
How about Poppy.
You know what.
I did.
I'm liking the two time OK.
Speaker 1: I like it.
Are they protected.
I have seen you know.
But I have to.
I have to say I was looking at
signing the guy she's having and
I know.
I might have to say.
And their marriage might have
baseball.
He's got the style the way and
this.
Speaker 2: And this is at least
I mean.
see how shiny they are.
OK.
I think they glow in the dark.
Pat.
Speaker 1: It to the pen.
I think they put the scales on
him.
And they put on Mickey Mouse on
the back.
Speaker 2: So my buddy buddy
Bobby is big thing with a 13
homers this time.
41.
Talk radio.
Speaker 1: Let's let's all take
a look at it Ryan.
You can chime in too big poppy.
Join this thing.
Well if you're similar.
You're.
Tall long way.
Yeah.
He's just out there.
Fun and get was.
Have.
As you can see.
the shoes right there.
It's all in the shoes.
The hole is too tall in the
shoes right there.
Speaker 1: Yes all the weight
goes back.
Speaker 1: Yes all the weight
the foot on those fine shoe.
Exactly.
Inside he's just warming up
eight and 13 equals twenty one.
So David Ortiz in good position
has.
To get in the finals.
Now.
We should say that part of the
reason Ryan is joining us here
is some of the work that he and
many of the major leaguers do
with action team program action
team is the partnership between
the MLB players.
And volunteers of America.
The group provides support in
the community in many many ways.
They've teamed up to create a
national youth volunteer program
to inspire and train high school
students to become community
leaders today.
Speaker 2: More than 30 thousand
students volunteered for the
program.
Kids organized volunteer
activities.
How many action teams schools
are.
On.
This.
really you know.
We're trying to get out there as
many.
As.
How did the high schoolers and
teachers get involved with.
The high schools high schoolers
and teachers and get involved
like the LP.
Speaker 1: Dawg.
Or they can go to Volunteers of
America.
Check it out.
Should I know it's been
invaluable to you right.
Yeah it has it has.
You know some of my teammates I
think from some of the footage
from earlier.
I showed myself.
Saying back to Reno Ben
Francisco doing.
We went out to.
Do.
Some of this.
You talk like old folks the time
and type home kind of condo so
to speak and the kids were out
there as.
Speaker 2: It's pretty rough day
was raining and I mean they just
showed a whole lot of
determination being out there.
We kind of helped out showed our
support plan some pretty intense
games of bingo kind of helping
out you know in the yard I mean
people get serious in there
about that bingo.
people get serious in there
me some dirty looks.
I couldn't.
Stay.
d.
You know some folks were making
some dirty.
Money.
But.
Speaker 1: Or an athlete or
anything like that to make a
difference.
Well it made a difference on
that team that you play for in
Philadelphia and in the
community that they rewarded you
with a wonderful contract
because of that and I know that
you're going to give back as
much as you can on the field.
And off the field.
Yeah most definitely.
We've had kind of a tough year
this first half but had some
injuries and whatnot but.
You know w
Get some guys back and get
focused on the second half and
then we get to go.
focused on the second half and
series with the Redskins you
guys swept every one of those
games is different.
Yeah.
Definitely definitely.
Ugly but effective I always say.
Not.
Speaker 1: So ugly but
Miguel Cabrera it's amazing how
he took the cut to pitches that
were a little inside and the
inside part of the plate and hit
him to right center field over
four hundred and fifty feet.
Speaker 2: He hit hard.
I you like to take the ball
away and go the other way man.
He takes the ball that's it like
that.
It goes the other way.
Big time.
I think wow when you're.
That's the first foul ball
I think wow when you're.
Yeah I think that when you he
can get inside of a ball.
Keep your hands inside and.
I'll take it the other way.
I think that's when things are
working right.
Little easier.
V.P. pick.
You know he's believed to be
where they are not during the
season too.
So I'm all for the latter.
Yeah.
Right.
How about hitting against the
starter for the National League.
It's a bit like that gets that
little boy with.
Him.
Wow.
Wow.
Oh.
That ball is torn.
I can say.
One thing about about.
Him the Mets.
You know when I when I first
baseman first came out he had
great stuff.
And I think that he thought he
could just kind of over our guy
98.
It's not just 98 it's 98 with
movement.
So that was kind of unfair in
itself but I think the one thing
that yes that's happened is that
he's definitely grown and he's
that yes that's happened is that
and actually pitch and not just
depend on his fastball but he's
and actually pitch and not just
and I mean he's went with that
fastball looks like it comes at
your hip and that goes back over
the hidden side part of it.
It's not fair that he's here at
times my two strikes it's not
fair but.
Line it's hell.
Speaker 2: Yeah it's gone it's
definitely phases.
Now you get a guy that line and
have some movement over that.
me.
The pressure going to get back
in this group here by the way.
Yeah.
And he's having some ment on
the balls and hitting up growth.
This one his group tore.
He may rename those videos
right.
Make.
Spells.
All.
Right.
Goodness.
He's he's playing water ball.
The rock pile.
Speaker 1: So he's got twelve
and the top two totals advance.
Remember Carhartt starts with
13.
So.
Clay put on a show that for his
arm around it.
He did.
Speaker 2: Ryan let me show you
something here.
later but this is Cabrera gets
under this a little much.
Speaker 1: This is a Mickey
Mantle.
Nineteen fifty one.
That's all right.
It's let's see.
Thirty five inch long.
Thirty three point six John.
Is it.
Yeah I mean do you think it's
not bad.
It's a thicker handle.
Right.
My bad I usually is a.
Thirty five.
Thirty four.
We're a little bit of a thinner
handle.
We're a little bit of a thinner
the Jack Robinson bat as well.
That you know back in the days
is the love the thicker handles.
Yes.
And it balances the bad out.
bad.
Nice actually.
I go up there take a round with
point sixty thirty six pounds
thirty just thirty thirty point
six.
because Dawkins is good to.
Estimated worth about one
hundred thousand one hundred
fifty thousand dollars in an
auction.
fifty thousand dollars in an
Fair.
The baseball All-Star.
Fanfare.
So.
Speaker 2: If you were there
would be some people keeling
over if you went to the plate
would right.
It has some issues I guess.
Oh no no.
Sunday marks.
Do this call Billy Crystal
because he bought.
A Mickey Mantle glove for like
300 grand.
Oh man.
Yeah.
Oh man.
He'll probably be there for
that.
CABRERA I'm not quite up there.
Speaker 1: You know with a golf
ball.
Couldn't quite do it.
Speaker 2: I'm kind of worried
How did we get did you guys have
to click.
How did we get did you guys have
Mine.ick. got.
Yeah I I.
I didn't.
But these guys took Cabrera from
me and they took me from me.
Hi.
Yeah he's in here.
So well I feel like I'm going to
have to say I think your heart
might be they might be the big
play as he lowered his hands and
he's got a slight upper thigh.
So now his hands go straight to
the zone.
Afwatching that first round
is he might surprise people
might go back to Milwaukee for a
second year.
Well Cabrera and Poppy for you
know what Miguel is not going to
make it.
Joe heot going to make it
because Corey Hart already has
13.
So he didn't catch him.
Poppy twenty and Corey 30 hasn't
ahead.
Home Run Derby two years ago.

Speaker 2: All Boys and Girls

Miguel Cabrera is gonna be out.
Yeah.
Hey copy is twenty one Corey
hard yet to hit with thirteen
Hanley Miriam.
Ramirez No he was not something
to think about Corey.
Ramirez No he was not something
half.
Well there are the shoes.
Speaker 1: Ryan Howard was
talking about.
I still like Big Bob.
I still think Poppy got him beat
back.
Speaker 2: Yeah he looks you
back.
got a little more style right.
You know they are like a wide
receiver.
Yeah right right.
Yeah.
Those little flashy poppies has
style.
Speaker 1: A read out of
Yeah that's.
You go walking down there and
those big boys can handle is
quite a talent.
Of course the lunch was disputed
debated.
Not long after he was bench and
had to run in.
A bench for not hustling or
perceived not hustling Freddy
Gonzalez got the heave ho.
Speaker 2: I don't know if there
was any debate though on whether
or not he was hustling.
He wasn't hustling and he needed
to be benched and he did exactly
what he needed to do.
I k I don't think there was
a debate.
Speaker 1: No not on that.
But then two weeks later Freddie
was out of work.
Speaker 2: That's all.
I certainly hope that didn't
have anything to do.
I would hope not.
Yeah.
Because I remember Tony Perez
and to all of Famers Andre
Dawson and the reds.
Took Ramirez aside and basically
told him.
You know you let your team down.
You let yourself down don't let
