WATCH: Bryce Harper rips huge inside-the-park home run off the left-field wall
Bryce Harper has been on fire as of late. After a recent two home run game, the Phillies’ talisman has added to his tally with an epic inside-the-park home run against Gabe Kapler and the San Francisco Giants.
Bryce Harper is all the way back:
God damn. Look at that man flying around the basepaths.
As far as inside-the-park home runs go, that might come the closest to a no-doubter that we’ve seen. Bryce might have slid into home, but the ball was nowhere near him.
He made it look like a walk in the park, albeit a very, very fast one.
Moments like this are sweet. Our main guy playing his ass off against a team two games back in the Wild Card race is good for everyone involved. Well, not if you’re Gabe Kapler, but he’s not our problem anymore.
Inside-the-park home runs are a pretty rare occurrence, which is why it’s pretty nuts Bryce Harper is the second Phillie to hit one in less than a year. JT Realmuto roped one of his own in the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves.
Funnily enough, both came off the State Farm sign on the left field wall. From a geometric perspective, that makes a fair amount of sense.
That left field wall can be trickyyyyy.
