The 2018 Florida League All-Stars (top) and Home Run Derby competitors (second from top) pose as a group prior to competition on Sunday at Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium. Wes Weeks of the Leesburg Lightning (3rd photo) receives his award from Florida League President Stefano Foggi after being named the All-Star Game MVP and Joe Burke (4th photo) of the DeLand Suns receives his award for winning the Home Run Derby from Foggi and FCSL Commissioner Rob Sitz. Burke (5th photo) launches one of his seven home runs that won the Home Run Derby title. Meanwhile, except for one inning, the All-Star Game itself turned into a defensive and pitching battle, including several double plays (6th photo) and a huge tag play at the plate (above).
