Astros pitchers suspicious about Bryce Harper's broken bat home run

These days, there's absolutely nothing about Bryce Harper's swing that's broken. The Nationals beat the New York Mets 8-6 in the game.

Bryce Harper is already known as one of the best players in baseball, but his home run on Monday night proved just how much strength the Nationals' right fielder has at his disposal.

The home run was Harper's eighth of the young season, and left him with the tiny remains of his bat in his hands as he trotted to first base.

With two down in the top of the first inning against the Mets, Harper took the first pitch of the at-bat and sent it into the stands.


While Harper ran around the bases, Tim Bogar, the Nationals first base coach picked up the small piece of bat that Harper had discarded just before reaching first base and handed the small piece of bat to the bat boy.

On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps. His manager, Dave Martinez, told Harper that yes he was strong. No matter, however, as Harper was still able place the ball 406 feet into the seats at Shea Stadium.

Why yes, that is like 90 percent of the baseball bat snapping off the handle upon impact.
