Bryce Harper hits broken bat home run

Bryce Harper has been on fire in the first few weeks of the season. No matter, though. Harper hammered the pitch over the right-center-field fence for his eighth home run of the season, as all those in attendance looked on in utter disbelief.

The Mets tied the game in the bottom of the first on a double by Michael Conforto which was followed by a RBI single from Todd Frazier.

The lumber split just above his hands, and the barrel helicoptered into the high, protective netting behind home plate on the first base side. Harper, a product of Las Vegas High School and the College of Southern Nevada, hit his major league-leading eighth home run, a solo shot in the first inning on a 95 miles per hour fastball from Jacob deGrom.

Harper connected for a solo drive in the first inning off Jacob deGrom.

On his way back to the dugout, Harper celebrated by pulling up the sleeve of his shirt to show off his biceps. Mets have three hits but only one run. The game is now in the top of the second. The Mets swept Washington in D.C. last weekend.

"There are a lot of hidden things that go into hitting but, for me, it's just trying to keep consistent, especially in my cage work, my pregame work", Story said.

Seriously. Harper crushed this ball while breaking his bat in two.
