What is Home Run Derby X?
Home Run Derby X is an electrifying new baseball format that takes MLB on a global tour. Home Runs and epic catches steal the show, while live music and ballpark culture push it to the next level.

How is Home Run Derby X different from regular baseball?
In Home Run Derby X, the field of play is smaller, with teams going head-to-head and points up for grabs on both offense and defense. Each batter has one at-bat of 25 pitches. They’ll be swinging for the fences, while two of their opponents patrol the outfield. A Home Run scores one point for the offense and a catch is one point for the defense.

In Home Run Derby X there are additional ways to score - Target Hits in the infield, and beyond the fence, can earn extra points for the batters. Each batter also has a Hot Streak – five consecutive pitches where Home Runs and Target Hits count double but a catch in the Hot Streak is also double points for the defense.

How is it different to All Star Home Run Derby?
Home Run Derby X is a team game, rather than an individual competition. There are 5 players per team, made up of four batters and one pitcher. Home Run Derby X is about offense and defense. Batters can score points via Home Runs and Target Hits but Fielders can also score points for their team if they catch a ball in the catch zone. The Hot Streak will allow for double points for both the offense and defense.

Will Home Run Derby X be on every year?
Major League Baseball is committed to the long-term development of Home Run Derby X. This is a multi-year initiative with plans for future expansion.

Which Clubs will be involved?
Home Run Derby X will have 4 teams who each represent 4 iconic Major League Baseball Clubs; Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers & New York Yankees.

How many people are on a team?
At each event, a team will have 5 players; MLB Legend, Superstar, Rookie, Wild Card and Pitcher.

Who will be playing?
Teams will consist of MLB Legends, Superstars, Rookies, Wild Cards and Pitchers.

  • MLB Legends are former MLB players, and will be the star hitters on the team.
  • Superstars are the best talent from women’s baseball and softball.
  • Rookies are the most exciting local talent drawn from the men’s baseball development system.
  • Wild Cards are high-profile content creators trained up by MLB and can be male or female.

Pitchers will put the ball in the right spot every time and will be on the same team as their Batters. Full details of the teams will be revealed before each event.

Will the same players be part of every Home Run Derby X event?
The teams will remain fixed unless scheduling, injury or illness dictate otherwise.

What experience do the Rookies have?
Rookies are male players drawn from the baseball development system. Home Run Derby X gives MLB the opportunity to highlight talent in international markets, providing a platform for local talent to showcase their skills.

What training will the Wild Cards do ahead of Home Run Derby X?
MLB have developed an intensive, elite training program to take each Wild Card from baseball novice to big hitter. Each Wild Card has been assigned a personal baseball coach who will work with them throughout the Home Run Derby X tour.

How do you score a Home Run?
A Home Run is when a fair ball travels beyond the Outfield Fence without bouncing. It scores 1 point for the batting team.

Can you score points in any other way?
Yes, players can also score points from Target Hits or Catches. There are 4 Targets in the field of play; 2 infield and 2 beyond the outfield fence. When hit by the Batting team, they earn 1 point. In the case of the outfield fence targets, this would result in 2 points; 1 point for a target and 1 point for a Home Run. When a fielder catches a fly ball in the Catch Zone, they score 1 Point for their team.

What is a Hot Streak?
Any time during their at-bat, the hitter may call for their Hot Streak: five consecutive pitches where the outcome of the play scores double points. This can also mean double points for the defense if they make a successful catch within the catch zone.

What is a Target Hit?
A Target Hit is when a batter hits a Target without the ball bouncing. A successful Target Hit scores 1 point for the batter’s team.

Is Home Run Derby X played on a regular baseball field?
The Field of Play is a reduced version of a baseball field, with Home Plate mounted on a stage and the Pitcher’s Mound on a podium.

How is a game decided?
After all four batters have completed their at-bats for both teams, the winner is the team with the most points.

What happens if there is a tied game?
Each team selects one batter to participate in a 10 pitch swing-off to determine the winner. In the Tiebreaker, only Home Runs can score points - no points are on offer for outfield catches or target hits.

How many Home Run Derby X games are there at each event?
The four teams will compete in a total of four Home Run Derby X games at each event.

Two Preliminary Round games will decide the teams that compete in the Final and 3rd Place Play Off. Each event will have a winning team, with the Home Run Derby X Tour Champions crowned at the end of the tour.

Home Run Derby X가 뭔가요?
Home Run Derby X 는 MLB를 세계 각국에 소개할 수 있는 새로운 방식의 야구 경기입니다. 홈런과 슈퍼세이브들이 관중을 사로잡고 라이브 음악과 MLB만의 야구 문화가 끊임없는 볼거리를 제공합니다.

Home Run Derby X가 일반 야구 경기와 다른 점은 무엇인가요?
우선 경기장이 일반 야구장보다는 작고 경기 중 공격 팀과 수비 팀이 동시에 점수를 낼 수 있다는 점이 가장 큰 차이점입니다. 공격 팀의 타자는 총 25개의 공격 기회를 가지게 되며, 수비 팀에서는 두명의 외야수가 타자의 홈런을 저지하게 됩니다. 타자가 홈런을 치면 공격 팀에 1점이 부여되며, 외야수가 날아오는 공을 잡으면 수비 팀에 1점이 부여됩니다.

Home Run Derby X에서는 내야와 담장 너머에 타겟이 설치 되며, 타자의 공이 타겟을 맞추게 될 경우 추가로 1점이 부여됩니다. 만약에 타자가 상승세를 타게 되면 Hot Streak를 발동시킬 수 있으며, 5번의 타석 동안 점수가 두배로 계산 됩니다. Hot Streak 동안에는 공격 팀 뿐만 아니라 수비 팀의 점수도 두배!

MLB 올스타의 홈런 더비와 다른 점은 무엇인가요?
Home Run Derby X는 올스타 홈런더비와 다르게 팀 경기로 각 팀이 공격과 수비를 모두 진행합니다. 각 팀은 4명의 타자, 1명의 투수로 총 5명의 선수로 구성되어 있으며, 공격 팀은 홈런과 타겟 히트로 점수를 올리며 수비 팀은 외야 캐치로 점수를 올리게 됩니다.

Home Run Derby X는 매년 진행되나요?
메이저리그는 Home Run Derby X의 장기적인 발전에 만전의 노력을 다하고 있습니다. 2022년의 Home Run Derby X는 추후 확장 개발이 예정되어 있는 다년간의 프로젝트의 서막입니다.

어느 팀들이 참가하나요?Home Run Derby X에는 MLB의 아이콘이라고 할 수 있는 보스턴 레드삭스, 시카고 컵스, LA 다저스와 뉴욕 양키스가 참가합니다.

한 팀에 몇명의 선수가 참가하나요?각 팀 별로 레전드, 슈퍼스타, 루키, 와일드카드와 투수, 총 5명의 선수가 참가합니다.

어떤 선수들이 Home Run Derby X에 참가하나요?각 팀 별로 MLB 레전드, 슈퍼스타, 루키, 와일드카드 그리고 투수가 참가하게 됩니다.
