Matt Chapman's Dad Pitched Circles Around His Son... In The Home Run Derby

Jim Chapman wasn’t out there to groove his son any heaters down Broadway. He was out there to get another shot in the Show. There aren’t any sports on tonight. He knows the entirety of the sports world is fixated on the HR Derby tonight. He sees what the Red Sox bullpen is looking like this season. Why not go out there and prove you can dice up one of the best hitters in the League? Plus, no one wanted to see Matt Chapman advance over Vlad Jr. Especially not Jim Chapman, who just wanted to remind his All Star son who REALLY wears the pants in that household. Take a seat, son. Dad’s putting Uncle Charlie on display tonight. That’s the real show everyone tuned in to see.
