Justin Bour's Home Run Derby performance was not only impressive, it included doughnuts

The first round of the 2017 T-Mobile Home Run Derby was a sight to see.
Cody Bellinger put on a performance with his dad -- former big leaguer Clay Bellinger -- throwing to him, Gary Sánchez surprised many with a 17-home run performance, and Justin Bour was on a tear of his own, hitting 22 homers.
To start things off, his teammate, Giancarlo Stanton, was cheering him on during the broadcast, yelling each time he hit a ball over the fence. So, you can do the math -- that's a lot of cheering.

When Bour took his break, he was fed doughnuts by Stanton, because Bour has a fascination with doughnuts. More than he does with abs, which we can all relate to.

Bour ended up falling to eventual Derby winner Aaron Judge, but he didn't go down without a fight. He knew he had to hit a lot of home runs in the first round if he was going to be able to keep up with Judge -- who slammed a 501-foot moonshot during his outing.
Either way, Bour more than likely has a new set of fans because not only was his power strong, but his entertainment value was superb.
