MLB home run derby rewatch party: Join the fun here and on ESPN2

Pete Alonso relives 2019 Home Run Derby triumph (2:45)

Pete Alonso and his cousin, Derek Morgan, reflect on their unbelievable 2019 Home Run Derby in Cleveland. (2:45)

On Thursday, March 26, ESPN2 aired a Home Run Derby Classics marathon starting with 2019's epic battle between Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Pete Alonso in Cleveland. After that, there were 2018 (Washington, D.C.), 2017 (Miami) and 2015 (Cincinnati).

To help celebrate the Home Run Derby fun on an Opening Day without Opening Day baseball, we asked some of our MLB reporters to join us in rewatching these classic long ball showdowns. We posted "live" updates, reliving our favorite moments and engaging in some good old-fashioned baseball debates beginning as the first long balls clear the fence in Cleveland.
