Home Run Derby Field: Bryce Harper Headlines Slugging Showcase

Iam Thank because your visit in the my website with title Home Run Derby Field: Bryce Harper Headlines Slugging Showcase. Happy reading

Washington Nationals outfielder and All-Star Game ambassador Bryce Harper will headline this year's Home Run Derby at Nationals Park in Washington.

Joining him for Monday's showcase is a group of sluggers who have hit 150 home runs. Seven of the eight participants hail from teams in the National League, with Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman the lone American League representative.

Harper will be participating in the event for a second time, while each of the other seven participants will be participating in their first.

"I think doing it is going to be a lot of fun," Harper said of the event. "I was able to participate in New York the first time and it was a lot of fun. If I win, I win. If I don't, it's part of it. I'm just excited to hopefully share that day with my dad (who plans to again throw to Harper at the Derby)."

The field is seeded 1-8 based upon their regular-season home run total. The Home Run Derby will be televised on ESPN on Monday night at 8 p.m. ET.
