Mous­takas part of Derby

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL -

SEAT­TLE — Well, Mike Mous­takas is headed to Miami no mat­ter what.

Mous­takas, the Roy­als' third base­man, will be the club's first par­tic­i­pant in the Home Run Derby in 26 years. He will com­pete next Mon­day at Mar­lins Park in Miami, the Roy­als con­firmed.

When Mous­takas takes his swings in the com­pe­ti­tion, which is part of the All-Star Game fes­tiv­i­ties, he will do so as a Roy­als record holder.

In the sec­ond in­ning of the Roy­als' game Mon­day night in Seat­tle, Mous­takas clubbed his 23rd home run of the sea­son — a 396-foot laser beam down the right­field line. No player in Roy­als his­tory had ever hit more than 22 homers be­fore the All-Star break.
