The night after Aaron Judge broke Statcast with a home run he nearly hit out of Safeco Field in a Yankees win, Bryce Harper did the exact same thing at Chase Field.
Harper hit a home run that MLB associate reporter Kyle Melnick is saying appears to have broken Statcast. It put the Nats up 1-0 in the first inning. Here’s the footage:
Like the Yankees did after Judge’s homer on Friday night, the Nationals tweeted at Statcast with a great GIF.
As some are pointing out, Miguel Sano also hit a homer so far that Statcast couldn’t get a read on it at the beginning of the month at Kauffman Stadium, which means, so far this has happened at least three times in one month.
Maybe someone needs to work on improving Statcast so it can provide stats on these colossal homers, though I imagine that’d take a bit of time.
Until then, we can guess.
