This is my favorite Home Run Derby of all time. It's the only one that sticks out to me from the past 15 years. Anyone who was around in '99 might argue that it was better than '08 and honestly it probably was. I was just too young to remember watching it live. The only disappointment of the '08 derby was that Hamilton didn't win. The derby changes their rules every year it seems so it's confusing to keep up with but in 2008 Hamilton did all his damage in the first round, knocking a record 28 out of the park. He added 4 homers in round 2, giving him a total of 32 entering the finals where the count resets. This allowed Justin Morneau to edge out a gassed Hamilton 5-3. Regardless of this defeat Hamilton's performance is one of the most memorable of all time.
