How does the MWBL going to handle the Christmas Classic Home Run Derby?  This is an idea that came from a league (BUNT), that the Commissioner checks out from time to time.  Dave Snyderman one of the members produced the idea a few years ago and which has been refined somewhat as they went along.  The MWBL refined the idea a little more and adopted the concept for the Christmas Classic Home Run Derby.

Representing the American & National League teams they finished 2018 with, will be the following twelve (12) players.
Started in 2017 – No Mid-West Baseball League Franchise will have more than one representative.
