Homerun Derby
by Billy Ingram

Homerun Derby TV Show Homerun Derby

When Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa were racing to make 62 homeruns in 1998, the press called it a "Homerun Derby" - no doubt referring to the popular syndicated television series from 1959-61.

Homerun DerbyHosted by Mark Scott, this unusual game show pitted major League hitters against one another for cash. Bat three homeruns in a row, and it's worth $500, another $500 for the fourth in a row and $1,000 apiece after that. And the players got to keep the cash, no giving it away to charity like they do today!

Big name batters like Hank Aaron, Duke Snider, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Wally Post and Dick Stuart were featured on the series. It was especially interesting to watch the banter in the box - not all of the players seemed comfortable with the idea that they needed to bat four or five homeruns in a row to avoid looking bad!

This only added to the tension, and made for a genuinely exciting and unique game show - with no lights, whistles or dramatic music.
