Josh Hamilton, Wonderboy

After the jump, the official ESPN wrap-up of the Home Run Derby -- during which, in the first round, Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton hit a record-setting 28 dingers, good God. And, sure, he didn't win -- Minnesota's Justin Morneau did, feh -- but, once again in the span of a mere four days, Hamilton proves himself the human highlight reel. But why limit ourselves to the highlights, when there's an all-you-can-eat buffet table? MLB's got the 28-homer montage, otherwise known as Major League Baseball's latest and greatest infomercial; below are immortal homers No. 24 through 28. I think I'm in love. --Robert Wilonsky
