SAN DIEGO – The Marlins Giancarlo Stanton put on quite the show during the MLB Home Run Derby Monday in San Diego.
The slugger crushed 61 total home runs over three rounds to take the Derby crown. He matched up against the defending champion Chicago White Sox Todd Frazier in the final round.
Home plate would've had 61 @Giancarlo818 footprints if they actually did HR trots.

Stanton was seeded No. 5 (out of eight contenders) and blasted a Derby best 24 home runs in the first round against Mariner’ Robinson Cano.
San Diego Padres Wil Myers knocked 10 homers during the Derby quarterfinals, but his challenger Adam Duvall of the Cincinnati Reds topped it with 11.
Despite moving onto the semifinal round, Myers had a memorable moment while at bat. Myers’ brother hit him with a pitch during the Derby.
Myers will return to the field Tuesday during the MLB All-Star Game. Coverage of the ASG starts at noon on FOX 5 San Diego.
