Giancarlo Stanton will defend his Home Run Derby crown at his home ballpark in Miami next month.

Stanton won the event last year with a record 61 home runs.

"Man, it's going to be so much fun. I'm really looking forward to it," he said. "The home crowd. The home city. All week is going to be good. I'm just looking forward to it. It's going to be fun."

Stanton has 20 home runs this season, tied for fifth in the Major Leagues.
