Stanton can defend his title at home next year when the Marlins host the All-Star Game.
The Western Metal Supply Co. Building served as one of the better Derby targets, joining the Warehouse at Baltimore’s Camden Yards in 1993 and McCovey Cove outside San Francisco’s AT&T Park in 2007.MORE NEWS: Truck Full Of Salt Crashes On I-88; One Person Seriously Injured
