Juan Soto wins the 2022 MLB Home Run Derby at Dodger Stadium over Julio Rodriguez
On Monday, Washington Nationals slugger Juan Soto won the 2022 Home Run Derby,
defeating 21-year-old Seattle Mariners phenom Julio Rodriguez.
He walked off the victory in his minute of bonus time after hitting 19 home runs in the head-to-head final.
In 1993, Juan Gonzalez was the second-youngest player to win the derby, at 23 years and 266 days.
At age 42, Albert Pujols upset No. 1 seed Kyle Schwarber in the first round
of the Home Run Derby.

lost to Rodriguez in the semifinals.
The goal of Alonso was to become the first player in history to win three consecutive derbies.
