On the other hand, viewers of the Home Run Derby on July 12 may have observed that every single participant was donning the same No. 44.


Jerseys No. 44

After the death of Braves great Henry Aaron in January, the team’s coaches, pitchers, and position players all donned No. 44 jerseys during practises.

Why are Home Run Derby Players Wearing 44

On April 8, 1974, the great slugger eclipsed Babe Ruth as Major League Baseball’s all-time home run leader.

The moniker “Hammer” and “Hammerin’ Hank” were among the many that were given to him.

Before the MLB All-Star Game on July 13, players donned No. 44 outfits in preparation.

A Team Portrait was Taken With all of the Players Wearing their New Threads.

They sported their customary team uniforms, complete with names on the back, but with the number 44 embroidered on the back instead.

Originally, Atlanta was set to host the All-Star Game, and a major element of the celebrations was supposed to be a tribute to Aaron.

After a new voting bill was passed in Georgia, Major League Baseball instead played the game in Denver in April.

Commissioner of Major League Baseball Rob Manfred issued a statement saying, “We will continue with our plans to honour the memories of Hank Aaron during this season’s All-Star festivities.”

How About the 2021 Home Run Derby Winner?

  • On July 12, eight major league hitters competed in the Home Run Derby.
  • Participating in the competition were:
  • One of the Orioles’ first basemen Mancini, Trey
  • The Los Angeles Angels’ top two-way player Shohei Ohtani
  • Joey Gallo, an outfielder with the Texas Rangers
  • Soto, Juan, outfielder with the Washington Nationals
  • Colorado Rockies’ shortstop – Trevor S. Story
  • Matt Olson, first baseman for the Oakland Athletics
  • Salvador Pérez, catcher for the Royals
  • Pete Alonso, the New York Mets’ first baseman and current National League MVP

Yet it was Alonso who showed everyone that he is still a platinum-level showman.

One year after the Orioles star’s victory over Stage III colon cancer, Alonso and Mancini squared off in the last round.

At the press conference, Alonso declared, “For me, I think I’m the best power hitter on the planet.” He was wearing a medallion that rotated to represent his championship, and he proudly displayed his trophy.
