A summer college baseball league in Minnesota made a splash with its innovative Home Run Derby.

Rarely do people hear about minor leaguers making history, but that's exactly what happened Wednesday.

During the T-Mobile Home Run Derby last night July 11, the ballboys and ballgirls became a trending topic on Twitter.

Take a look!

Last night, July 11, the MLB held its annual Home Run Derby presented by T-Mobile in part of the festivities for the All-Star break. This year the fans were not let down as the participants gave it all in hopes to win the competition.

Giancarlo Stanton put on a show like no other. Fans have seen him hit towering moonshots during the regular season and last night was no different. Stanton gave fans a true treat with a spectacular performance from the start.
