If you are a baseball, I urge you to look away from this video of Bryce Harper mashing the absolute bejeezus out of one of your kin:


The website Home Run Tracker measures this dinger (here’s a link for certain mobile users) at 467 feet, the ninth-longest shot of the 2017 season. Harper was the third batter faced in the first career start for Diamondbacks prospect Anthony Banda, and it was a gruesome welcome-to-the-big-leagues moment for a guy who otherwise handled Washington’s fearsome offense pretty well. Harper smoked an RBI ground rule double in the sixth inning, and the Nats survived more shaky bullpen work for a 4-3 win.
