If you're anything like me, the MLB Home Run Derby is probably one of the most fun nights of the entire season.

The Home Run Derby has been a staple in the All-Star festivities since 1985, and it sees players of all different shapes and sizes get a chance to swing for the fences in an effort to be crowned the home run king.

The Cincinnati Reds have seen three former players win the Home Run Derby. Five other teams (Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, and the New York Mets) have also seen three Home Run Derby Champions.

Which Reds players have won the MLB Home Run Derby?

Dave Parker, who played the majority of his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, joined his hometown Cincinnati Reds in 1984.

Parker added to his already stellar resume when he mashed six home runs to defeat the likes of Jim Rice, Eddie Murray, Carlton Fisk, Cal Ripkin Jr., and Ryne Sandberg, to become the first-ever Home Run Derby winner in 1985.

Eric Davis won the Home Run Derby in 1989. David had one of his greatest seasons ever in 1989, mashing 34 home runs. Davis was named co-champion with Texas Rangers Ruben Sierra.

Todd Frazier was the most recent Cincinnati Reds player to win the Home Run Derby in 2015. "The Toddfather" had one of the best seasons of his career in 2015, logging 35 round trippers that season.

But there wasn't a bigger moment than his Home Run Derby win in front of a packed house at Great American Ball Park. It took extra time to win the event, but Frazier became the third player in Reds history to take home the Home Run Derby trophy. Frazier is tied for fifth place all-time with the most dingers (91) hit in the Home Run Derby.
