The MLB listened to its fans and ratings when it realized it needed to make a change to the Home Run Derby. In its basic model, this event should naturally be exciting, given how much people enjoy watching home runs, especially towering moonshots. However, in past years, the 10 out system allowed for batters to take their time. That meant taking pitches and waiting for every single perfect one to swing at. That drags out the event, and people just wants to see the home runs.
