The big game between the sport's best players takes place tonight, but fans have already enjoyed an historic Home Run Derby. Last night, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit 25 homers in the final round to win. His dad, Hall of Famer Vlad Guerrero, won the Derby 16 years ago - the first-ever father-son winners of the event. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
