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

Of all the feats Bryce Harper has pulled off in his six-year Major League Baseball career, perhaps none has been quite as remarkable, impressive and downright preposterous than what he accomplished during Monday night during the Nationals-Mets game.

Harper shattered his bat in two, and the ball still cleared the right-field wall with plenty of room to spare. The Nationals beat the New York Mets 8-6 in the game. "I heard the bat break and then I looked, I saw Nimmo, he just kept going so I was like, oh, well, I guess that's out of here".

Harper seemed to realize he had done something ridiculous because he carried the bat handle with him all the way to first base, as if to make sure every understood what had just happened. No matter, however, as Harper was still able place the ball 406 feet into the seats at Shea Stadium.

New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom did his job in the first inning of Monday's game. Harper should be back in the lineup Tuesday against Mets' righty Zack Wheeler.

The 25-year-old former NL MVP has hit 158 home runs so far in his career, boosting his total with the solo shot in the first inning. Enough to hit a home run despite breaking his bat.
