Bryce Harper's broken-bat home run is comically absurd

Washington Nationals land car rental partner

"Barreled it pretty good", Harper told Associated Press.

It's no secret that Bryce Harper is a baseball freak, but every now and then the Washington Nationals superstar will do something that puts your jaw on the floor. "It just broke and kept going".

The ball sailed far over the wall in right center at Citi Field.

Harper broke his bat his first time up Monday against Jacob deGrom in the first inning.

"Yeah, that was pretty shocking", deGrom said, with a slight grin. Enough to hit a home run despite breaking his bat.

While the player himself made his way round the bases to the crowd's applause. first base coach Tim Boger was picking up the broken bat, handing it to a nearby bat boy. Since the start of last season he has hit.377 (23-of-61) with six homers and 13 RBIs against them.

On his way back to the dugout, Harper celebrated by pulling up the sleeve of his shirt to show off his biceps. But anything like that?

"It was impressive", Turner said "There's rumors that it was already broken beforehand".
