 [  ] The twelve Derby Sluggers battled it out until only two were left -- the AL's Rogers Hornsby and the NL's Johnny Mize. The NL used their home park advantage to squeak past the AL 29-28. But it wasn't over yet. Hornsby and Mize still had to go one on one for the Derby Crown. The results -- Rogers Hornsby 5, Johnny Mize 1. The Home Run Derby Champion for 1999 is Rogers Hornsby of the OOSL AL New York Yankees.
