That said, team president David Samson is going to take high road and keep the promise of offering 61 percent off, "What Giancarlo did was so cool that we are working on an additional offer", Samson said. That hot streak included his longest home run of the night, a 452-foot shot, according to Statcast.

"I grew up watching this", he said. "I would like to return that".

The achievement is all the more remarkable considering Petco Park in San Diego is where - as ESPN puts it - "home run balls... go to die".

However, some new construction around the park in recent years - combined with some minor reductions in the distance of the outfield fences in 2013 - may have finally turned the tables. He flew to San Diego simply for the Derby, saying after the fact, "So I figured it's a waste of time if I don't bring this bad boy home", referencing the trophy.

"I didn't hit 15 or 20 homers in the first half", he said. And it ranks 15th in promoting home runs, playing nearly perfectly neutral.

Frazier and Stanton certainly didn't have any problem seeing the ball in the San Diego twilight. Frazier won the event past year as a member of the Reds. He beat Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez 13-12 in the first round and Cincinnati's Adam Duvall 16-15 in the semis.

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton crushed the competition en route to winning the first Home Run Derby of his career.

Stanton hit 24 homers in the first round to eliminate the Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano (seven) and 17 in the semifinals to knock out Mark Trumbo (14) of the Baltimore Orioles. "He's one of the most intense competitors that anyone's ever been around, so I just knew he really wanted to win it". "Next year it's at home, so I mean, pretty good chance". Hee-Seop Choi, who was in the contest because of MLB's global affair to promote the World Baseball Classic, hit five home runs back in 2005 and he was the all-time leader. And in the past few years, there has been a consensus among baseball fans that Giancarlo Stanton is the best at doing that. At this point Frazier needed only 3 dingers to set the individual record, and he did so and more by getting 13 big flies.
