The MLB All-Star Game 2012 Weekend is on the horizon, and the State Farm Home Run Derby selections have been revealed! The Derby can be watched at mlb.com or on ESPN on July 9th at 8PM! AL captain #Yankees Robinson Cano picked Mark Trumbo, Prince Fielder and Jose Bautista. NL Captain #LADodgers Matt Kemp chose first-timers Giancarlo Stanton, Carlos Beltran and Carlos Gonzalez. #Cano dominated the Derby last year (video below)!
