Bryce Harper smacked a home run Monday despite breaking his bat in half in the process

Bryce Harper has provided us with the latest evidence that he is, in fact, not human.

The Mets tied the game in the bottom of the first on a double by Michael Conforto which was followed by a RBI single from Todd Frazier.

The lumber shattered just above his hands, and the barrel helicoptered into the high, protective netting behind home plate on the first base side. But whereas the vast majority of broken-bat hacks result in looping line drives or weak ground balls, Harper's generated enough power that the ball carried to right-centerfield, then kept carrying right over the fence for an absurd solo home run.

As if Harper wasn't making his case to vault over Mike Trout for the unofficial title of best baseball player on the planet, his first-inning home run tonight against Jacob deGrom is just another bullet point, broken bat and all. On his way back to the dugout, Harper playfully pulled up his sleeve to show his biceps.

Aaron Judge became the fastest major leaguer to hit 60 career homers, and Gregorius finished with three RBIs.

"Yeah, that was pretty shocking", deGrom said, with a slight grin.

Seriously. Harper crushed this ball while breaking his bat in two. OF Jay Bruce (plantar fasciitis) didn't start for the second straight game. The Mets swept Washington in D.C. last weekend.
