Home Run Derby slugfest: Yankees’ Judge joins Marlins’ Stanton in lineup

Marlins Park is one of the stingiest ballparks in the majors in terms of yielding home runs. Only AT&T Park in San Francisco has permitted fewer home runs since Marlins Park opened in 2012.

But it might not stand a chance in the Home Run Derby on July 10.

On Monday, an array of sluggers — most notably New York Yankees sensation Aaron Judge — agreed to take part in the slugging contest that serves as an appetizer to the All-Star Game one day late

With defending champion Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins set to retain his title, it shapes up as perhaps the biggest heavyweight slugfest in Home Run Derby history….

The Marlins’ Justin Bour, Yankees’ Gary Sanchez, Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger and Twins’ Miguel Sano are also planning to participate. Colorado outfielder Charlie Blackmon and Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas round out the field.
