Long and towering home runs are part of Kyle Schwarber's repertoire during his first four seasons, with a few of them as major moments in a memorable era for the franchise.

The AL and NL All-Star managers have revealed the pitchers they'll be using immediately after starters Chris Sale and Max Scherzer.

On Monday night, Bryce Harper sent fans in Washington, D.C. into pure, unadulterated elation by smashing the living crap out of baseballs for a couple of hours. "I've grown up in front of these fans".

Bryce Harper put on a show Monday night to win the 2018 Home Run Derby at his home park, Nationals Stadium. Now you can. Thanks to Bryce Harper, you can pay as little as $1 to go to a Washington Nationals game after his dominant performance in the 2018 MLB Home Run Derby.

Despite hitting 23 home runs in the first half of the season, Harper's batting average has fallen to an anemic.214.

The Chicago Cubs' Schwarber hit the most home runs in the derby with 55 through three rounds. To Washington sports fans, Tuesday's All-Star Game itself might seem an anticlimax. He had just nine homers with 50 seconds to go, before going on a rampage with nine in regulation. As the ball cleared the wall, the left-handed hitting Harper walked out of the batter's box and thrust both arms in the air.

Harper smashed four in a row from the 30-second mark and another on the final pitch to equal Schwarber on 18, but he had earned a 30-second time bonus for a chance to win. "I feel very fortunate to bring it back to them".

Here's the victor for Harper.

And if he's ever asked to do it again? "I knew that he had the home crowd behind him". Muncy outhomered Baez 17-16.
