Brewers' Hart eliminated after second round of HR DerbyWisconsin Sports
- Brewers' outfielder Corey Hart eliminated in second round of Home Run Derby.
Milwaukee Brewers’ outfielder Corey Hart was eliminated in the second round of last night’s All-Star Home Run Derby in Anaheim.
Hart belted 13 homers in his first round – the most of the eight participants. But he didn’t hit any in Round-Two. And he failed to make it to the final round, when Boston’s David Ortiz won the Derby 11-to-5 over Hanley Ramirez of Florida. Hart said he got cold after waiting an-hour-and-20-minutes between his first and second at-bats.
He said he was a lot fresher in the first round, because he had just taken batting practice. Hart said he tried to pace himself by letting 15 pitches go. He hit five-of-eight over the fence early in his opening trip. And he later hit three-in-a-row, including a massive 464-foot blast to left center.
In the end, Hart said he was happy to make it to the second round – and he’d take part again if he ever gets the chance. Meanwhile, the Brewers say Hart’s performance will shave 13-dollars off the price of 30-and-40-dollar outfield seats for two upcoming Brewer games – July 23rd against Washington and August sixth against Houston. Those tickets go on sale at nine this morning.
