Format

  • Single elimination system with three rounds in total
  • Batters will have three minutes per round in the first and second rounds and two minutes in the final round. The clock begins with the release of the first pitch and the round ends when the stopwatch reads zero. A home run will count as long as the pitch has been thrown before the timer reaches zero.
  • Once the second player in a given round exceeds his opponent’s home run total, the round ends
  • After the first round, the winner of the Ohtani-Soto showdown will meet the winner of Pérez-Alonso. On the other side, the Gallo-Story winner faces the Olson-Mancini winner. The two remaining players will meet in the final round.
  • 30 bonus seconds will be awarded to each batter at the end of each regulation period. A batter can gain an additional 30 seconds of overtime, for a total of 60 seconds, if he hits at least one home run that equals or exceeds 475 feet (followed by the Statcast of MLB powered by Google Cloud) in the regulatory period. The bonus period, either 30 seconds or 60 seconds, is a single time segment, with no waiting times. During the bonus period, a special magenta ball from T-Mobile will be used
  • Each batter is entitled to a 45-second timeout in each of the three regulation periods. Wait times cannot be requested during bonus periods
  • Ties in any round will be broken with a swing-off 60 seconds with no time interruption or added extra time. If a tie persists after swing-off, the batsmen will participate in successive swing-offs of three swing until there is a winner
