Rhys Hoskins makes impact in Home Run Derby

Chandler owns Chandler Bats and made this bat for Hoskins, as well as one for derby favorite Bryce Harper.

The Home Run Derby winner's wife, Kayla - among others - brought this to the internet's attention.

Much of the night felt like a send-off from Harper to the Nationals fans.

Syrian army says it captures strategic hill overlooking Israeli border

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.

Harper would go on to hit a HR Derby walk off with the title in his bonus 30-second round. Hoskins opened by blasting 20 homers, the highest number that had been hit to that point. He was greeted by a smattering of boos by Nationals fans but said he fed off the energy of the crowd.

Because we live in a world overwhelmed by a surprising amount of free time, there is already a Change.org petition to have Harper's victory taken away.

But on this night at least, Harper did not disappoint.

A few years ago Major League Baseball revamped the Home Run Derby format to make things more exciting and hey, it worked.
