Bryce Harper's home run against the Mets proved the power of the Nationals slugger.

Bryce Harper's home run against the Mets proved the power of the Nationals slugger.

  • Bryce Harper hit a broken bat home run on Monday night in the first inning of the Nationals game against the New York Mets.
  • The home run traveled a whopping 406 feet over the right-center fence, giving Harper his eighth home run of the young season.
  • Baseball fans were left in awe of Harper's power.

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.

Facing off against Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom in the first inning on Monday night, Harper broke his bat on a pitch that he somehow was still able to hit out of the park.

Whereas most hitters would send a ball dribbling into the infield on a broken bat, Harper instead lifted his a whopping 406 feet over the wall in right-center at Citifield.

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. Even if he had wanted to flip his bat in celebration, he was left with no bat to flip.

It's a rare sight, and across Twitter, baseball fans were impressed.

Harper is set to become a free agent this upcoming offseason, and with power like that, it's no surprise that some think he could become the highest-paid player in baseball.
