Minneapolis, Minn. - From press conferences for both the Home Run Derby and the 85th All Star Game to Derek Jeter's massive following to various interviews from this year's baseball all stars, Yoenis Cespedes headlined All Star Monday in Minnesota.

The victory was Cespedes' second consecutive Home Run Derby title.

"I’m doing a lot of different things. I've been interviewing, been working with Bleacher Report a little bit. I'm really just getting to know TV broadcasting.”
