Bryce Harper had the ideal celebration for his broken-bat home run

Bryce Harper home run

Bryce Harper home run

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. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour. It's nothing new that Harper has been the league's best player in the month of April - he has hit.320/.436/.649 with 40 home runs and 107 RBI in 137 games in the season's first month for his career - but the things he is doing this year are just on another level.

Facing Jacob deGrom with two outs in the first inning, Bryce swung hard on an inside baseball, shattering his bat and leaving himself with only a handle in his hands. Over the weekend, he was one for 15 with 10 strikeouts against Washington.

Harper is now up to eight home runs this season, which means nearly any time he touches the ball it goes over the fence.
