DENVER — With low humidity and the Mile High thin air, baseballs are set to soar Monday at the Home Run Derby, one of the most popular parts of All-Star Game weekend.

"You practice all day and pretty much your whole life to throw the ball hard. It's kind of the ultimate goal," said Trevor Story, Rockies shortstop, about hitting a home run. "It's just a really gratifying experience."
