2012 Home Run Derby: Prince Fielder Becomes Only Second Player to Win Multiple Titles…

Detroit’s Prince Fielder became only the second player to win multiple titles in the All-Star Home Run Derby, thrilling the crowd at Kauffman Stadium with eight splash shots into the right-field fountain and beating Toronto’s Jose Bautista 12-7 in the final Monday night.

 

 

On a night when the Yankees’ Robinson Cano was repeatedly booed and went homerless, Fielder put on the most powerful display among baseball’s big boppers. A winner at St. Louis’ Busch Stadium three years ago, Fielder hit a total of 28 home runs over three rounds to cap the main event on the eve of the All-Star Game, hitting the longest drive of the night at 476 feet into the water.

 

Ken Griffey Jr. won three titles, in 1994, 1998 and 1999.
