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.

Now, broken-bat home runs are not entirely unheard of. That's impressive enough, but when you consider he did it while breaking his bat, it is ridiculous.

The ball sailed far over the wall in right center at Citi Field. But the Mets responded with a tying run in the bottom half on a Todd Frazier RBI single. Harper's bat shattered just above his hands, and the barrel helicoptered on a fly into the high, protective netting behind home plate on the first base side.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge hit his 60th career home run on Monday night, a solo blast to right field off of Marlins starter Caleb Smith in the second inning. The Mets swept Washington in D.C. last weekend.
