The 1993 baseball All-Star Game was held in Baltimore. I didn’t go to the game but I did attend the Home Run Derby the day before. The derby was not as big a deal then as it is now. It was held in the day time.
The things I remember:
- Juan Gonzalez hit an incredible home run to the third deck in left field. With hindsight, he was probably juiced.
- Ken Griffey, Jr. hit the warehouse on the fly. This has never been done in a game.
- Cecil Fielder was accompanied by one of his kids. He looked like a sawed-off version of Fielder. He was very stout. I assume this was Prince Fielder.
I have two foul balls hit by Orioles players in Home Run Derbies. I bought them online.
