Bryce Harper hits broken-bat home run

Bryce Harper Launches 406-Foot Broken-Bat Home Run During Nationals vs. Mets

It's no secret that Bryce Harper is a baseball freak, but every now and then the Washington Nationals superstar will do something that puts your jaw on the floor. Unfortunately for deGrom, it didn't matter. How do you break your dang bat and still hit a ball that hard?

I've seen broken bat home runs before.

With the possible exception of blowouts, we doubt that any Mets' pitchers are going to be too eager to challenge Harper.

With two down in the top of the first inning against the Mets, Harper took the first pitch of the at-bat and sent it into the stands.

Harper shattered his bat and was left with just a few inches of the stump but still managed to hit a solo homer over the fence in right field on Monday night in NY.

Judge, who turns 26 years old in 10 days, entered Monday's action batting.340/.470/.566 with three home runs and nine RBI in 66 plate appearances.
