Chandler also made bats for last year's Home Run Derby victor, Aaron Judge. He was drafted by the Oakland Athletics and moved on to play for the Midland RockHounds in 2013 through 2014.

Harper is the third player to win the Home Run Derby at his home park, joining Todd Frazier in Cincinnati (2015) and Ryne Sandberg at Wrigley Field in Chicago (1990).

Milwaukee's Aguilar, the NL home run leader at the break, was eliminated in the opening round by Hoskins 17-12. Schwarber started rather slowly, but began cranking jack after jack and hit his 21st just as the four-minute clock expired.

Hometown favorite Bryce Harper rallied in the final round, connecting on pitches from his father to beat Schwarber 19-18 and win the Home Run Derby. He trailed Max Muncy of the Dodgers 12-4 with 2:20 left, then peeled off six homers in 47 seconds before calling a timeout.
