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

To make the home run even crazier, according to Statcast it was longer than his season average to this point.

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

The homer went 405 feet and was traveling at 99 miles-per-hour as the barrel of the bat flew behind home plate and near the first-base dugout.

Seriously. Harper crushed this ball while breaking his bat in two. Harper hit his major league-leading eighth home run, a solo shot in the first inning on a 95 miles per hour fastball from Jacob deGrom.

Leave it to Bryce Harper to do something that many long-time baseball observers had never seen. This was the 2015 NL MVP's second homer in as many games.

This was the case Monday night, as Harper took a Jacob deGrom pitch into orbit for his league-leading eighth home run of the season.
