A’s third-base coach Mike Gallego will pitch to Céspedes.

The 2014 Home Run Derby is Monday, July 14 on ESPN TV and ESPN Radio at 5:00 PM.

The 2014 Home Run Derby will have a new format, which features a maximum of seven outs per round and bracketed play after the first round. The player who hits the most home runs in each League in the first round will automatically receive a bye to the third round (Semi-Finals). The next two players from each league with the most home runs will square off against one another in a head-to-head matchup in the second round. The winners of these matchups will advance to the third round to face-off against their league’s top seed. The final round will feature the winners of the A.L. and N.L. Semi-Finals matchups going head-to-head for the 2014 championship.

UPDATE: Yoenis Céspedes wins 2014 Home Run Derby with 28 homers.
