Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper was facing New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom in the first inning on Monday when he hit what might be the most remarkable home run of his career. It was Harper's eighth home run of the season.

We have a feeling it won't be long before Harper takes the baseball world by storm with another highlight-reel play.

The ball sailed far over the wall in right center at Citi Field.

The board announced the news today (April 16) that the Top Dawg Entertainment LP achieved the honor in "Music Composition". A string of stories in the two newspapers shined light on connections between Russian officials and Trump's 2016 campaign.


As Harper rounded the bases, first base coach Tim Bogar picked up the few inches of lumber left in the former NL MVP's batting gloves and handed it to a bat boy. The pitch jammed Harper, and the Nationals slugger broke his bat cleanly in half on the swing.

The blast put the Nats up 1-0 in the top of the first, but the Mets just tied it on a Todd Frazier RBI single.

You probably will not be surprised to learn Harper leads the Major League Baseball in home runs with eight.
