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. Cespedes defeated New Jersey native Todd Frazier in the final round to win the 2014 MLB Home Run Derby, which featured a completely new format that was largely based on a bracketed seven out system. The victory was Cespedes' second consecutive Home Run Derby title.
