Oakland Athletics outfielder, Yoenis Cespedes, put on quite a show for baseball fans watching the 2013 Home Run Derby. Cespedes, made it clear early that he had shown up to win, hitting 17 “bombs” in the first round.

6 of the 32 home runs Cespedes hit, were sent into the upper deck, something no one else in the competition accomplished.

In the finals, Bryce Harper (the youngest player in the Derby) put up 8 home runs but with five swings remaining, Cespedes hit a 455 ft shot to deep center securing him with the home run title.

There was some history made tonight, Yoenis Cespedes becomes the first player to win the Home Run Derby who was not selected to the All-star game.
