Twitter reacts to how jacked Bryce Harper's father is (The Sports Daily)

In the final, Schwarber came in just under his total from the semifinals with 18 homers and Harper started off his round slowly, but rallied late and got the tying homer with just a few seconds left. And congratulations to Bryce Harper on winning the 2018 Home Run Derby!

So that's your challenge this week, to name all the Home Run Derby winners since its inception.

Harper finished second in the 2013 Derby, but things went better this time.

Hoskins drove out 17 homers to eliminate Aguilar who hit 12.

"It's all fun and games, and it's nice that normally beleaguered Nationals fans get to go home from the #HRDerby happy..." one Twitter user wrote.

Yes, it was. The Home Run Derby was tonight.

Schwarber advanced to the final against Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, the hometown favorite who tied a District of Columbia flag bandanna around his head and knocked off Atlanta's Freddie Freeman and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Max Muncy. However, the slugger had earned a 30-second time bonus by hitting two home runs longer than 440 feet. However, Schwarber hit a hot streak and edged him out with time to spare. Eight hitters competed in a home run bracket featuring a series of head-to-head competitions.

I'm going to put my money on - note: I am not actually putting money on the Home Run Derby - on Jesus Aguilar. Why?

In 2019, the All-Star festivities will move to Progressive Field in Cleveland. The event simply lacked the kind of star power that it regularly featured in the past, which might not bode well for the future.
