ESPN will broadcast the 2021 Home Run Derby, featuring Shohei Ohtani, Joey Gallo, Juan Soto, and several of the most successful sluggers in baseball this season. The event gets underway on Monday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this All-Star break showcase event, you can stream the Derby via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream it.
