Bryce Harper has hit a lot of home runs in his young career, but Monday’s shot was one of the most impressive.
Although the Nationals star shattered his bat on a swing against Mets starter Jacob deGrom, he still had enough strength to hit the ball out of the park:

The 25-year-old was already leading the majors with seven home runs coming into the day. Per ESPN Stats and Info, he is one short of his career best for April despite having 12 more games to play in the month.
Set to become a free agent after the season, Harper seems to be making more money every day.
