After a great workout in front of scouts from different teams across Major League Baseball at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the preliminary round of the Under Armour All-America Game Home Run Derby, powered by B45, concluded with eight athletes moving on to the finals at Wrigley Field.

Positional players from both teams participated in prelims, with four total coming from each side (top two and two coaches pick) for the combined total of eight in the finals.

On the American side, Blaze Jordan (Southaven, MS) (who won MLB’s All-Star Game Home Run Derby recently) connected for seven home runs, while Daniel Susac (Carmichael, CA) blasted six homers. The two wild cards selected were: Nolan McLean (Willow Springs, NC) five home runs hit in prelims and Tanner Witt (Houston, TX) who hit three homers.

For the National side, Jack Bulger (Bowie, MD) and Zac Veen (Port Orange, FL) both hit seven home runs to pace their squad.  The two wild cards that represented the National squad were: Austin Hendrick (Oakdale, PA) with four homers and Blake Shapen (Shreveport, LA) with three homers.

It was an exciting ending to the finals as Austin Hendrick from the National squad edged out Daniel Susac (American) in a swing off (2 to 1) to claim the 2019 Under Armour All-American Home Run Derby Championship.
