Watch Rhys Hoskins compete as himself in a home run derby on MLB The Show 18

It's no secret that we're huge fans of Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins. We've already hung out with him at Citizens Bank Park in Philly and showed him some unique ways to cross home plate.

Also, last year, when Hoskins was still in Triple-A, we held a miniature home run derby with him and fellow Phillies phenom Scott Kingerythat was flat out awesome.

Rhys was kind enough to swing by the office on Tuesday, so we challenged him to another home run derby. This time on MLB The Show 18. We shared Yoenis Céspedes (as we usually do), while Rhys obviously played as himself. 
Check out the video at the top of the post to see whether Rhys is as awesome at baseball video games as he is at actual baseball.
