All-Star week in RVA continued at The Diamond Tuesday night with the Eastern League Home Run Derby, featuring the Eastern League's finest and local Virginia celebrities.

The derby was scored using a point system in which a ball that rolled to the wall was worth five points, a ball hit off the wall was 10 points and home runs targets were 25 points. 

There were winners in several categories. Former Richmond Brave and New Hampshire Fisher Cats manager Mike Mordecai won the celebrity contest by scoring 35 points. Mordecai will manage the Eastern Division for the All-Star Game Wednesday night.

Erie Seawolves third baseman Isaac Paredes won the western division title with 110 points, while Reading Fightin Phils first baseman Darick Hall took the overall crown with a power display of 175 points.
