He wound up with 13 home runs, a long way from the Marlins slugger, who hit a record 61 overall in the competition and is expected to defend his crown at next year's Derby in Miami.
Todd Frazier will try to defend his title in the All-Star Home Run Derby at Petco Park.
Stanton also hit the longest home run of the day, estimated at 497 feet, and ate without guilt into the brick facade of the Western Metal Supply Co. building in left field.
Stanton is easily one of the most feared hitters in the game, and despite not making the All-Star team for the first time since 2013, he found a way to make his presence known.
Stanton is the second straight National League player to win the Home Run Derby.
Eventual victor Stanton obliterated Robinson Cano with 24 shots, four shy of the all time single-round mark set by Bobby Abreu in 2005.
Stanton defeated Baltimore Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo, 17-13, in one semifinal matchup with 14 of his shots carrying more than 440 feet.
Watch Stanton defeat Frazier in the final round in the above clips and the other Major League Baseball players give him the only celebration the champ deserves. The 26-year-old ended up hitting 61 in the Home Runs Derby, the most ever. It was as if he were unleashing all of the frustration of a hard first half of the season on the friendly tosses of Pat Shine, the Marlins' administrative coach.
Until last season and Joc Pederson's run to the finals, the Home Run Derby has been disappointment for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The young Seager, playing in his first All-Star Game at age 22, had a good showing, hitting a total of 15 homers with his father, Jeff, pitching. In all, he hit over five miles of home runs. It should not come as a surprise considering Stanton is one of the best and most powerful home run hitters in all of baseball. "I like to return the favor". A year after blasting 70 home runs, he - along with Sammy Sosa and Griffey - lit up the Boston skies in 1999. The highlight of the night had to be the 24 home run barrage in the first round, where his colossal skyscraping homers were as impressive as his 450-foot line drives that somehow, impossibly, were still rising as they went over the fences.
