July 10, 2012 – Kansas City, Kansas
Prince Fielder won the 2012 All-Star Home Run Derby by blasting 12 bombs in the final round. He almost did not make it past the first round, hitting only five. But he erupted for 11 in Round 2 and another 12 in the last round, defeating Jose Bautista.
Mark Trumbo and Carlos Beltran rounded out the foursome in the second round, with Fielder and Bautista moving on to the finals.
Fielder landed eight shots into the fountains of Kauffman Stadium and also launched two 476-foot homers, the longest of the night. His final round 12 home runs tied a record set last year by Robinson Cano.
