Mark Trumbo didn’t win it all at tonight’s Home Run Derby, but he definitely put on a show. There were Trumbombs a plenty, but the one that stood out amonst them all was his blast that landed on top of the big scoreboard in left field of Kauffman Stadium.
It may not have been the longest dinger of the evening, but it was definitely one of the most visually impressive. Unfortunately for Mark, it also wasn’t good enough to advance the Trumbomber to the final round of the Derby, not that it looked like anyone was going to beat Prince Fielder in this one.
Good job, Trumbo. Now, kick butt in the All-Star Game and get back to Anaheim and preferably don’t come back with a messed up swing. That would be super.
