Slugger Bryce Harper will participate in the Home Run Derby if he makes the National League All-Star team.
On Friday afternoon the Nationals tweeted: ”tfw Bryce announces he’ll do the (at)MLB HR Derby if he makes the NL All-Star team…” accompanied by a GIF of Harper celebrating in the dugout.
The All-Star Game will be held July 17 at Nationals Park.

Harper last participated in the derby in 2013 at Citi Field in New York.
The NBA’s reigning Rookie of the Year has joined a two-time Super Bowl champion to rally support for clean water, a cause dear to both University of Virginia alumni.
Milwaukee Bucks player Malcolm Brogdon announced Thursday that he’ll be the first NBA ambassador for Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long’s Waterboys Initiative Sam Hubbard Jersey , which installs deep-borehole wells in east Africa.
A University of Virginia release says Long reached his initial goal of building 32 wells, at $45,000 each Zdeno Chara Jersey , the same week the Eagles won the Super Bowl last month.
At Virginia, Brogdon partnered with a nonprofit focused on affordable ceramic water filters in South Africa.
The Hoos’ generosity extends beyond water: Long donated his entire 2017 season salary to charities, and Brogdon had the money budgeted for his Rookie of the Year campaign donated.
