Slugger Bryce Harper Hits Home Run with a Broken Bat

Two things that typically don't go together are broken bats and home runs, but Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper accomplished that feat Monday night.

The homer is Harper's eighth of the young season, leading all of major league baseball. The homer helped the Nationals come from behind to beat the Mets, 8-6.

Harper was one of the most highly touted prospects in modern baseball history a few years ago as he came through the Washington farm system. He's led the Nats to their best stretch in franchise history, although the team has yet to get past the first round of the playoffs.

He's lived up to the hype, as he already has 157 career home runs, a Rookie of the Year Award, an MVP Award, and five All-Star appearances in six seasons in the big leagues. Think about that, then think about how he won't turn 26 years old until October.

He's well on his way to being one of the best to ever play the game and is a free agent after the season, where he'll likely become the highest paid player in major league history. And this feat of strength only furthers his legend.
