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."
