Breaking news! Ryan Howard just won the Century 21 Home Run Derby!

Here are some fascinating stats: 6 of Howard’s first 18 home runs came with one out left in his round. He went up against David Wright of the New York Mets in the last round and beat him by a score of 5 to 4. With that win, a couple from Philadelphia Kentucky (wearing Phils hats, designated to Howard as their player) will get over $200,000 to build their dream home, and 500 lucky fans will win a free flight (Howard hit a special promotional banner in the outfield) anywhere in the nation.

To quote Ryan Howard, “There you go, Philly; a little something to cheer about!”
