Twitter reacts to Bryce Harper's broken bat home run

Like all of America, I was outraged to learn Bryce Harper's hilarious double-hairdryer video was nothing but a stunt to push haircare products. The Washington Nationals slugger might have outdone himself tonight though.

To make the home run even crazier, according to Statcast it was longer than his season average to this point. That's impressive enough, but when you consider he did it while breaking his bat, it is ridiculous. On Monday night he hit his MLB-leading eighth home run of the season, despite breaking his bat.


Harper shattered his bat in two, and the ball still cleared the right-field wall with plenty of room to spare.

On the first pitch of his at-bat, Harper smacked the ball 406 feet to rightfield to get the scoring started in the game despite his bat shattering upon contact. But the Mets responded with a tying run in the bottom half on a Todd Frazier RBI single.
