Bryce Harper is not making baseball fun again for opposing pitchers. Last night against the Dodger, Harper turned on a fat fastball from Bud Norris and deposited it about 500 feet into the third deck, and damn near out of the stadium. The mammoth blast put the Nats up 2 – 0 as they pounded the Dodgers 8 – 0.
What you know about that third deck?

The mammoth blast was Harper’s 20th of the year, and a good start to the second half of the campaign for the reigning NL MVP, who struggled somewhat in the first half.
It’s not often you get nosebleed seats and end up with a souvenir, but if Harper’s in the lineup, bring your glove.
