Shattering energy: Nats’ Bryce Harper breaks bat and still homers

This was once shear energy by way of Bryce Harper.

In a startling show, the Washington Nationals slugger broke his bat into two items, but still hit a protracted house run Monday evening towards the New York Mets.

Harper’s bat shattered simply above his arms, and the barrel helicoptered into the top, protecting netting at the back of house plate at the first base aspect.

The ball sailed some distance over the wall in proper centre at Citi Field. Harper hit his main league-leading 8th house run, a solo shot within the first inning on a 95 mph fastball from Jacob deGrom. Statcast projected the homer at 406 toes.

As Harper rounded the bases, first base trainer Tim Bogar picked up the few inches of lumber left within the former NL MVP’s batting gloves and passed it to a bat boy.

On his as far back as the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to turn his biceps.
