My suggestion to improve the Derby: Cut this from three rounds to two.
Every year, the best guys peak in Round 1, then they slowly fade as the contest drags on. So why not have the top three hitters from Round 1 advance to the1finals in Round 2?
You can salvage the missing round by staging a one-round Legends/Celebrities Home Run Derby with Reggie Jackson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Dave Winfield, Coolio and everyone else. Who wouldn't enjoy that? They could even have the guys from "West Wing" shagging flies in the outfield.
This can't miss.
