Jordon Adell celebrates his home run derby win
LONG BEACH—Jordon Adell of the White Sox continued his stellar week at the Area Code Games by winning the home run derby.

Adell put on a show, winning the finals with a minute left in regulation and hitting several home runs longer than 400 feet. Adell said his approach to the derby was to keep things simple and get in rhythm with his pitching coach.
He added that his goal for the rest of the tournament was to “keep grinding with the boys” and maintain their undefeated record.
