But Prince Fielder's moon shots won him a title, the 2012 Home Run Derby.

Fielder's 12 home runs in the final round topped the 7 long balls hit by Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista.

It's his 2nd title for the Tigers 1st baseman, but first in the AL, after winning number 1 with the Brewers  3 years ago in St. Louis.

Former Arkansas Traveler, Mark Trumbo lit up the Twitterverse with several homers over the Royals Hall of Fame in left field, but he was eliminated by Bautista 2-1 in a 5-out "swing off". 

The event leads up to Tuesday night's All-Star Game.  Coverage starts at 6:30 PM on FOX16.
