The Cardinals player of Lara, William Contreras, was the winner of the Home Run Derby 2021 at the LVBP, an event that had also won in its previous edition.

Contreras became the fourth player to win the Home Run Derby at least twice, joining Eliézer Alfonzo, Miguel Cabrera and Carlos González.

In the final he defeated Balbino Fuenmayor.

“I never gave up, I know there were quite a few good competitors, but I always trusted myself,” the winner told the LVBP official site.
