Bryce Harper launched a home run almost completely out of Nationals Park

Heading into Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Bryce Harper's last home run was way back on July 9. That's 11 whole days. That's too long. He's also had only three this month. That's too few.

So in the first inning, Harper decided he would try to hit a baseball completely out of Nationals Park.

Yes, that was haflway up the third deck and about 15 rows from exiting stage way, way up in the sky.


According to Statcast™ (a good day for Statcast™), the ball traveled 451 feet. According to our imaginations, it's in Virginia and headed north to the ends of the world.
