Despite not filling one the multiple empty Derby spots with our lad Daniel Vogelbach, the MLB Home Run Derby is still happening anyways today at 5 PM PDT.

Given the choices, I’m hoping Josh Bell or Vladito runs away with it, but I have a sneaking suspicion Bregman or Chapman will go off and piss in everyone’s cereal. Whatever. Here, this is more fun—check out these images from the 1999 Home Run Derby that I found in the photo tool:
