How does Home Run Derby X work?
The rules of the game are simple; batsmen are awarded a point for each ball they hit over the field fence, however there are four targets within the field of play that they can aim for as well. Unlike other batting derbies, this one also includes defense; so in this version, the opposition in the catch zone can score points by catching balls in the air.
