Want to watch a bunch of guys hit baseballs really far? We have some TV programming for you then! The 2018 Home Run Derby is structured in the now-familiar timed “Bracket” style format. Here are the first round match ups

Jesus Aguilar (Brewers) vs Rhys Hoskins (Phillies)

Alex Bregman (Astros) vs Kyle Schwarber (Cubs)

Bryce Harper (Nationals) vs Freddie Freeman (Braves)

Max Muncy (Dodgers) vs Javier Baez (Cubs)

Round Two will pit the winners of the first two match ups against each other, and ditto the second two.

Round Three is the winners of round two, for the championship.

That’s right, the AL only has one representative, versus the NL’s five. No, it isn’t fair, or right, but welcome to the MLB.
