Well, Bryce Harper was in the news when he got ejected the other day, so I figured maybe we should even out the coverage of baseball's top prospect.

Friday night Harper came to the plate with one one and one out and Harper's Harrisburg Senators trailing 2-1. With a full count, Harper crushed Ryan Pope's curveball to straight-away center for his third home run at Double-A. Check out the video here (Harper's homer is at the 2:05 mark):

Senators hitting coach Troy Gingrich told Andrew P. Shay of the Patriot News that Harper's homer was just the seventh home run to clear the batter's eye in dead center.

"It's definitely the furthest one I've ever seen hit," Gingrich said. "Awesome at-bat, awesome. Down 0-2 and working it back to 3-2. Then he hit the same hanging curveball."

Here's another angle on the home run:

HT to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

Harper sucks...he'll never be a great hitter in the bigs unless he fixes the mechanics of his swing which is not suited for major league level pitching.  Plus the fact that i hear he's an immature  doush...he still needs to grow up .

Harper's first Double-A homer is a walk-off

According to this link:http://www.baseball-reference.

com/minors/player.cgi?id=harper002bry and every other article I've seen about this, it was Harper's third homer in AA.
