Welcome to the Greatest Moments in Marlins History. The Home Run Derby seems to be the highlight of ever year’s All-Star Game. The Marlins have had plenty of players give their best to bring that trophy home, but all fell short; however in 2010 one player came closes of all. Welcome to moment 89: Hanley Ramirez’s 2010 Home Run Derby bid!
The year is 2010 and Hanley was voted to be the starting short stop for the National League. With that he also got to represent the National League and the Marlins in the Home Run Derby. In the First Round Hanley put up an impressive 9 home runs to finish only 2nd to Corey Hart’s 13. Hanley even passed Miguel Cabrera who only had 7 that round. It was off to the second round where Hanley belted 12 home runs to finish 2nd to David Ortiz’s 13 home runs; but those 12 home runs would be good enough to eliminate Hart and Miggy to give Hanley a berth into the finals and be the first Marlins player to make it to the finals. Hanley fell to David in the final round 5-11 but he showed that down in Miami there were some power in our bats!
Happy New Year to all our readers and Marlin Fans! May this year bring you all great joy and prosperity. Let us continue to root on our beloved Fish and hope we can bring another World Series to the great city of Miami. Until next time… Let’s go Marlins!
