Harper breaks bat, muscles out 406-foot HR

The Washington Nationals slugger might have outdone himself tonight though. Statcast projected the homer at 406 feet.

The shear power of Bryce Harper was startling.

Harper's bat shattered just above his hands, and the barrel helicoptered into the high, protective netting behind home plate on the first base side.

This apparent injury is bad timing for Profar, as he just got the opportunity to start at shortstop after Elvis Andrus went down with an injury.

Seriously. Harper crushed this ball while breaking his bat in two. Between that time of that and the cameras cutting to the outfield, the expected result would be the right fielder tracking down a fly ball. It was a solo drive in the first inning off Jacob deGrom.

Mets right fielder Brandon Nimmo headed toward the wall and quickly ran out of room.

"Yeah, that was pretty shocking", he said. Harper held what was left of his bat as he made his way up the first-base line. On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps. "I said, 'Yeah, you're strong, '" Nationals manager Dave Martinez said. The rest of the National League had better be on notice for the rest of the year as the 2015 NL MVP looks beyond motivated to make his case for the largest contract in MLB history (forget $400 million, how about half a billion?).
