PHILS ALEC BOHM SWINGS INTO HOME RUN DERBY — IN IT TO WIN IT!

By Sam Bush

Phils third baseman Alec Bohm will participate in the Home Run Derby at 8 p.m. ET on July 15, during the All-Star festivities in Arlington.

Though he’s never been a prolific home run hitter — his career high in a season is 20 in 2023 — the righty definitely has pop. Four of his 11 homers this season have traveled 415 feet or more, and nine of the 11 have been hit with an exit velocity of 101.9 mph or better.

Bohm’s longest homer of 2024 came on June 30, a blast off the Marlins’ Yonny Chirinos that traveled 427 feet to left-center field at Citizens Bank Park. That was also his hardest-hit dinger of the season — it had an exit velocity of 106.8 mph
