NEW YORK -- David Wright and Robinson Cano are going to give the Home Run Derby a New York feel.

Wright, the third baseman for the New York Mets, this year's host for the All-Star game, has been named captain of the National League team. Cano, the crosstown rival Yankees second baseman, is going to lead the AL squad for the second straight year.

The derby is scheduled for July 15 at Citi Field as part of All-Star weekend festivities in New York City.

Wright and Cano will choose three teammates each. Last year, Cano was roundly booed for bypassing Royals star Billy Butler when the event was in Kansas City.

Cano won the derby in 2011 and Wright was runner-up in 2006.
