On Monday night, one of MLB's best shows — the Home Run Derby — will take place in Cleveland, the host of this year's All-Star festivities.

The 2019 Home Run Derby will feature several of the game's top emerging stars, including Ronald Acuna Jr. and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and should be filled with plenty of attention-grabbing long balls.

MLB Home Run Derby 2019 format

An eight-player, three-round, single-elimination tournament will determine the Home Run Derby champion. First-round matchups are based on regular-season home run totals; Yelich, who leads MLB in home runs, will be the No. 1 seed (Chapman will be taking his place after Yelich withdrew from the competition) and face the competitor with the least amount of long balls in the opening round.

Players will have four minutes in each round to hit as many home runs as possible. They will receive 30 additional seconds in a round if they notch at least two home runs that travel more than 440 feet.

Ties will be broken by a 90-second swing-off.
