My son got an early birthday present when his favorite player, Big Papi won the HR Derby over Hanley Ramirez. Both Ortiz and Ramirez entered the final round with 21 HRs. Papi exploded for a record-tying 11 HRs in the final round to Hanley’s 5. It was the first time a Red Sox player has ever won a HR Derby. Corey Hart jumped out to an early lead with 13 first round HRs, but Papi never relented hitting 8, 13, and 11 HRs.
