Home Run Derby
Baseball has tweaked the format of the All-Star Game Home Run Derby in a way that I think is very, very cool. Namely, the last two winners (David Ortiz of the American League and Prince Fielder of the National League) have been named the captains of their respective teams, and they will each be the ones who pick their 3 teammates. I think this is a refreshing way to do this. I wouldn't necessarily want it this way every year, but at least this once I like it very much.
