In the first inning, with two men on, Philadelphia Phillies slugger Bryce Harper cleared the bases quickly with a rocket-shot home run.

Miami Marlins pitcher Robert Duggar, who was a late addition due to starter Jose Urena being scratched due to a positive COVID-19 test, served up a grapefruit that Harper absolutely devoured.

The ball left the yard in 4.1 seconds, leaving Harper’s bat at 109 miles per hour. Just absolutely tattooed. The only thing I’m disappointed in is that Harper wasn’t wearing his amazing Phillie Phanatic cleats for this one.

This was the first home run of the 2020 MLB season for Harper. And it gave the Phillies an early, commanding 3-0 lead over the Marlins.
