Quick Bit: Don’t have cable? The MLB All-Star Game is still plenty accessible.

Full Story:

The 2022 Home Run Derby will be airing on ESPN this year, but with streaming being a nearly ubiquitous reality in today’s sports viewing experience it may not be accessible to some people interested.

Luckily, there are a myriad of ways for cord-cutters to watch this year’s swing-off, as ESPN is among the most accessible channels out there, whether one has cable or not.

Pete Alonso is going for the first-ever three-peat of the King of Swing title, and he’s looking to join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only three-time winners of the event.

Here’s what you need to know to watch Alonso try to defend his title against the field in Los Angeles.

Past Home Run Derby champions

The Home Run Derby has never been held at Dodger Stadium, as the event began in 1985 in Minnesota. The last time Los Angeles hosted the All-Star Game was 1980. This event was originally meant to be held in 2020, but COVID-19 cancelled the All-Star Game and deferred L.A.’s hosting to this year.
