Harper headlines Home Run Derby field, will face Freeman

NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper will take on Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman in an all-NL East matchup in the first round of the Home Run Derby on Monday night.
The 25-year-old Harper is the second seed at his home ballpark by virtue of his 22 homers through Tuesday’s games. Freeman, the top NL vote-getter for Tuesday night’s All-Star Game at Nationals Park, is the seventh seed with 16 homers.
“It should be fun. I’m hoping the fans are excited for him and he gets nervous and gets a zero,” Freeman said. “But we’ll see what happens.”
The field was revealed Wednesday night.
