CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The inclement weather over Cincinnati has caused changes to the rules of the All-Star Home Run Derby.
According to MLB.com, the winner of each head-to-head matchup will move on to the semifinals, while the loser will be eliminated.
The two semifinals winners will square off in a third and final round.
Ties will be broken by a 90-second swing-off. If there's still a tie after that point, the batters will engage in successive three-swing swing-offs until a winner is declared.
Each batter will have those four minutes to hit as many home runs as possible. However, batters can extend their time either of two ways:
1. Utilizing their one "timeout" per round
2. Hitting at least two homers that equal or exceed 425 feet (as calculated by MLB.com's revolutionary Statcast™ technology), earning 30 seconds of bonus time.
The All-Star Home Run Derby begins at 8 p.m. July 13.
