Harper breaks bat, muscles out 406-foot HR


Yoenis Cespedes hopes grand slam in Mets' win over Nats is the hit that will finally end early-season slump

Like all of America, I was outraged to learn Bryce Harper's hilarious double-hairdryer video was nothing but a stunt to push haircare products.

According to Statcast, the home run traveled 386 feet and was 108 miles per hour off the bat.

All that was basically left in Harper's hands was the handle of the bat.

The Washington Nationals slugger easily leads the majors in home runs ... and broken bat homers. So far, 2018 is shaping up to be the Year of Bryce, and that's excellent news for baseball. Monday's home run also helped him extend his hitting streak to 12 games.

Seriously. Harper crushed this ball while breaking his bat in two. Statcast projected the homer at 406 feet.

This was the case Monday night, as Harper took a Jacob deGrom pitch into orbit for his league-leading eighth home run of the season.

On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps.
