Midland native competed in MLB Home Run Derby


During the Home Run Derby as a whole, 221 homers were hit, the highest total in history.

As Bryce Harper was besting Schwarber in the Derby's final, Twitter was filled with serious allegations of Home Run Derby misconduct. He launched the winning blast on his second extra swing, holding his bat over his head and walking down the first-base line as it cleared the center-field fence.

Harper ran into a similar situation his his second round, dragging behind as Muncy led with 12. "I was trying to see Kyle hit as many as he can as far as he could, and he didn't disappoint at all". Naturally, they did what most angry people do on the internet.

Harper can only hope this helps him get back into the swing.

After Harper's dramatic win, some Cubs fans pointed out that Harper's father, Ron Harper, who was pitching to his son, didn't exactly follow the rules during the final minutes when Harper made his push to tie Schwarber. He homered on almost half of his swings. Harper is also the first left-handed hitter to win the Derby since Prince Fielder in 2012. So, too, did his dad, who was throwing to him. In the semis, Harper topped Max Muncy 13-12 to advance to the finals. The Nationals favorite then hit 7 homers in one minute, paving the way to overtake Muncy.

Immedietely after the derby, Cubs fans were pissed as they watched the replay and Schwarber's Home Run Derby title slip away, while many were quick to point out that Harper may have "cheated" the Cubs slugger.
