The events will be spread out over several days, with the brackets for the Home Run Derby announced on Wednesday, the futures game set to take place on Sunday along with the start of the draft, the derby and softball game set for Monday and the All-Star Game set for Tuesday.

Here’s the full schedule for what to expect over the several days of baseball action.

MLB Home Run Derby participants 2021

The Home Run Derby will feature eight players competing in a bracket style, trying to hit as many home runs as possible in a four-minute time span. If batters are able to send at least two baseballs 440-plus feet, they will be able to add an additional 30 seconds to their time to keep swinging. The four winners of the first-round matchups will advance to the semifinals where they will compete for spots in the finals.
