Life in the minors

Jason Giambi won the home run derby in the MLB All-Star game. I'm not sure what the prize was, but the trophy looked pretty nice, and some couple won $250,000 from Century 21 towards the purchase of a new house.
Brandon Larson won the Triple A home run derby over Joe Crede. For his victory, Larson won $1000 and a $500 Old Navy gift certificate.
