Last night featured an exciting Home Run Derby, in which Bryce Harper defied all early expectations, coming back from an awful start in the final round only to hit nine home runs in 10 swings to tie Kyle Schwarber at the end of his initial time, winning it all with his second swing during the bonus period.

Tonight will be the 2018 MLB All Star Game, featuring our own Brandon Crawford as the starting shortstop for the National League team.

Of course, since the league eliminated Home Field Advantage as a reward for winning, the only real incentive to win the game is a $20,000 cash prize for players on the winning team. While players on the losing team get nothing except the joy of playing with the best players in baseball.

Which is our incentive to watch, as well! Which you can do at 5:00 pm PT on Fox, or you can listen on ESPN Radio.
