|Robinson Cano reacts to the booing|
during the Home Run Derby
During Monday night’s Home Run Derby, the captain of the American League, Robinson Cano was booed viciously and constantly after he promised to select a Kansas City Royal player, most notably Billy Butler to be in the Home Run Derby, in his hometown stadium, but Cano decided not to select Butler and the fans voiced their displeasure over, and over and over again. A similar situation occurred at last year’s derby when Prince Fielder did not select Justin Upton from the Arizona Diamondbacks to be in the derby in his hometown stadium. So to ward off any such situation in future derbies, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is considering a rule that a hometown slugger be included in the Home Run Derby in his own stadium.
