History of Dodgers Home Run Derby Winners

No Dodger has won the Home Run Derby, but former Dodgers have!

  • Darryl Strawberry was a co-winner in 1986 as a member of the Mets with Wally Joyner. Strawberry played for the Dodgers from 1991-1993
  • Eric Davis was also a co-winner three years later in 1989 with Ruben Sierra. Davis, a longtime Cincinnati Red (the jersey he wore while capturing the crown), was with the Dodgers from 1992-1993.
  • Garret Anderson was only with the Dodgers for a short time (80 games), which marked the end of his MLB career in 2010. He took home the Derby title in 2003 as a member of the Angels.
  • Bobby Abreu's stop in LA was only for 92 games in 2012, but he's a former Dodger who won the Derby back in 2005 as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.
