Bryce Harper Hit A Home Run After Breaking His Bat In Half

Facing New York Mets hard-throwing right-hander Jacob deGrom, Harper smoked a 96-mph fastball to right-center field for a solo home run.

Just how much strength and power does Bryce Harper have?

Hitting the skin off the ball is a pretty wild occurance but it's not totally unheard of in baseball.

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

Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN) announcers Bob Carpenter and F.P. Santangelo were amazed that Harper was able to hit a homer with just a few inches of the bat left in his hands.

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