Home Run Derby Playoff:

 [  ] The twelve Derby Sluggers battled it out until only two were left -- Wally Berger and Mule Suttles, both of the AL. The AL used their home park advantage to good measure and buried the NL 38-24. But it wasn't over yet. Wally and Mule still had to go one on one for the Derby Crown. The results -- Wally Berger 1, Mule Suttles 0. The Home Run Derby Champion for 1998 is Wally Berger of the OOSL AL Toronto Blue Jays.

 [  ] Thanks go out to Lon for finding this great shot of Wally Berger for us.
