Harper arranged to have his dad, Ron, pitch to him for the derby. The Nats star said his father "worked his tail off every single day to provide for me and my family" and "now being able to have him throw to me in a big league ballpark is the cherry on top," according to the AP.

"It's been a tough year for Harper, who's hitting only .214 for the disappointing Nationals. He won a contest that many sluggers avoid, fearful it might wear them out and throw them off," the AP reported. "He can only hope this helps him get back into the swing."
