Petco Park is home of the MLB All-Star Game and the Home Run Derby. It is not known as a hitters park, but has seen Wil Myers hit 13 home runs there this season. It is also there home of the resurgence of Melvin Upton Jr., and he has hit six home runs there, including the longest one of the year, to dead center:
The Home Run Derby will feature the following matchups:
- Mark Trumbo vs. Corey Seager
- Todd Frazier vs. Carlos Gonzalez
- Adam Duvall vs. Wil Myers
- Robinson Cano vs. Giancarlo Stanton
No MLB ballpark has allowed more home runs than Great American in Cincinnati, with 135. Unfortunately for the Reds, 57% of them have been hit by the visiting team.
Chase Field (125), Oriole Park (124), Safeco Field (122), Coors Field (121) and Rogers Centre (120) are the only other parks with 120+ home runs.
AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, has seen just 63 home runs this year, in 46 games.
It is no surprise that Yankee Stadium has allowed the most home runs, 8, that would not have been a home run at any other ballpark. Brian McCann has twice taken advantage of the short porch.
Wrigley Field has allowed six of these just enough home runs, while Mookie Betts has hit two of the five lucky home runs at Fenway Park.
