This Was Bryce Harper’s Hardest-Hit Homer Of The Statcast Era

Statcast started tracking in 2015, according to CSN, and this was the fastest exit velocity of Bryce Harper’s 86 homers during that time:

I timed that at 3.3 seconds from the bat to the bleachers.

Crazier still is that, according to the Statcast leaderboard, Aaron Judge already has three harder-hit homers this year.

It’s a good sign for Harper, though, who despite having an MVP-caliber season overall, has struggled for weeks. Since May 19, a 22-game span, he’s batting .229 with .323 on-base and .434 slugging.

He does have two dongs in the past four games and is on an eight-game hit streak, so maybe he’s snapping out of it.

Let’s hope so. Mortal Bryce is no fun.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.
