Hambino tops Derby's anniversary list
With the Home Run Derby celebrating its silver anniversary, ESPN.com writer Jayson Stark has compiled a list of the top 25 moments from the past 25 years. Not surprisingly, Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton's exploits at old Yankee Stadium in 2008 comes in at No. 1.
What's lost from that contest, in which Hamilton launched 28 homers in one round: He didn't win it. Justin Morneau did. But who cares? What Hamilton did that night will be remembered for a loooooong time.
