The Championship Round:

An out is registered when a player swings at a pitch and does not hit a home run. A ball hit over the fence must be fair to count as a home run.
Home Run Derby History:
Prior to the 1985 All-Star Game being played, a new tradition was born when Major League Baseball adopted an official format for a Home Run Derby . Though these types of contests had taken place before, this was the first time it was going to be acknowledged by the League.
From 1985 through 1990, the Home Run Derby was structured as a two-inning event with each participant getting five outs per inning. Since 1991, eight to ten players, were chosen to participate in a three round contest to determine the Home Run Derby Champion . Each player received ten outs per round as they attempted to hit as many home runs as they could.
The top four, regardless of their league affiliation, have advanced to the second round. If a tie existed among players for advancement into Round 2, the player with the most regular season home runs at the All-Star break advanced. The second tie breaker, if nec essary, is distance of longest home run in Round One.
The 2005 Derby was the first "we are the world" long ball contest. It featured eight sluggers from eight different countries, paying homage to the 2006 World Baseball Classic - the first international baseball tournament which will include Major League players from the twenty-five man rosters of each Major League team.
