Harper hits broken-bat HR, helps Nats rally past Mets 8

Washington Nationals baseball star Bryce Harper is known for his big swings, but this week he hit a home run with a difference - smashing his bat in the process! His bat broke into two pieces, but the ball still flew an estimated 406 feet to right-center field. According to MLB's website, the swing propelled the ball 406 feet, with an exit velocity of 99 miles per hour. The solo shot was his eighth of the season and came on the first pitch from Mets starter Jacob deGrom. The late comeback by the Washington Nationals?

It was reminiscent of Barry Bond's broken-bat home run against the Marlins in 2002. He was cruising when he left with two on, one out and a five-run lead.

"There are a lot of hidden things that go into hitting but, for me, it's just trying to keep consistent, especially in my cage work, my pregame work", Story said.
