Home Run Derby Update: June Swoon

The third month of our inaugural Home Run Derby is in the books and we are only 13 days from the half-way point. Remember there is a winner for the first half and/or the second half and there is a lot of baseball left to be played, so don’t give up hope if your team is in the lower half (like mine).

June mixed up the standings a bunch, but two of the leaders after May are still in the top 3, but neither are in first. The new Derby leader is The Master Batters with 62 moon shots. His team destroyed the month of June (hitting 25 hr) thanks to the hot hitting of Josh Hamilton. Hamilton has 18 homers this season and has hit half of them in June (not to mention he hit 0.434 with 31 rbi in June). The Master Batters is the only team who owns Hamilton and, as long as he stays healthy, may have found the golden ticket to the top of the standings.
