While in the event of a tie, the highest number of tablazos as of June 15 were taken into account. With that criterion, the White Sox’ Robert Jr. would have left as the first baseman, ahead of the Mets’ first baseman.
The format of the competition is very simple: it is divided into three rounds of direct elimination, in which the best player seeded second will be knocked out.
In the first two rounds each player will have three minutes and the time is reduced to two minutes in the final. The clock begins with a first-rate run and all connected home runs before the clock reaches zero will be counted. When the second batter leads in the first tie, then the round is over.
