Bryce Harper: Crushes broken-bat homer in Monday's win

Bryce Harper: Crushes broken-bat homer in Monday's win

Harper now leads Major League Baseball with eight home runs while sporting an otherworldly.315/.487/.778 slash line.

It is safe to say, however, that Harper will not be using his 33½-inch, 31½-ounce Marucci bat again, after it was shattered in two pieces, splitting just above his hand.

The hit was Harper's MLB-leading eighth home run and gave the Nats a temporary lead at New York's Citi Field.

The ball traveled approximately 406 feet to right-center and deGrom admitted he could only stand and look as the ball sailed over the fence.

Seven Dead At Lee Correctional Institution
At least seven people are dead after fights broke out at a maximum security prison in sc , according to authorities. According to the agency, all staff and responding law enforcement officers were "safe and accounted for".

The 25-year-old former NL MVP has hit 158 home runs so far in his career, boosting his total with the solo shot in the first inning.

To make the home run even crazier, according to "Statcast" it was longer than his season average to this point.

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

And it was just another thing to add to the already impressive April Harper is having.
