Home Run Derby (1990-1999)

Prior to the 1985 All-Star Game being played, a new tradition was born when Major League Baseball adopted an official format for a Home Run Derby. Though these types of contests had taken place before, this was the first time it was going to be acknowledged by the League.

From 1985 through 1990, the Home Run Derby was structured as a two-inning event with each participant getting five outs per inning. Since 1991, eight to ten players, were chosen to participate in a three round contest to determine the Home Run Derby Champion. Each player received ten outs per round as they attempted to hit as many home runs as they could.

The top four, regardless of their league affiliation, have advanced to the second round. If a tie existed among players for advancement into Round 2, the player with the most regular season home runs at the All-Star break advanced. The second tie breaker, if necessary, is distance of longest home run in Round One.

The 2005 Derby was the first "we are the world" long ball contest. It featured eight sluggers from eight different countries, paying homage to the 2006 World Baseball Classic — the first international baseball tournament which will include Major League players from the twenty-five man rosters of each Major League team.

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a complete breakdown of every Home Run Derby played between 1990 and 1999. Though the criteria, rules, and results have changed the event is still a fan favorite and we hope this page is informative.

"I remember in 1999 sitting there watching Mark McGwire hit balls five-hundred ninety (590) feet. I just hope mine go three-hundred thirty (330) feet and go over the wall. I don't hit tape measure shots. I hit line drives and squeakers that just clear the wall. As long as it goes over the fence, that's all that counts." - Luis Gonzalez in the 2000 Home Run Derby (ESPN)
