Mendoza, Olney dish about dingers in advance of MLB Home Run Derby

Editor’s note: The 2017 T-Mobile Home Run Derby will be simulcast in Spanish on ESPN2.

It’s considered the most-anticipated Home Run Derby in recent memory.

On Monday, July 10, ESPN will exclusively televise the T-Mobile Home Run Derby (8 p.m. ET) from Marlins Park in Miami, Fla.

It will be a superstar slugfest featuring defending champion and hometown Miami Marlins’ hero Giancarlo Stanton, New York Yankees’ breakout sensation Aaron Judge and Los Angeles Dodgers’ rookie standout Cody Bellinger.

ESPN named Karl Ravech the new voice of the event, and announced a new broadcast team of Ravech, Mark Teixiera, Jessica Mendoza and Buster Olney.

Mendoza, an Olympic Gold and Silver medalist in softball, knows a thing or two about hitting the long ball. And Olney, the highly-acclaimed veteran reporter, has covered countless homers in his day. In the video above, they discuss their favorite home runs heading into this year’s event.

ESPN MLB Production unit produced the video.
