Astros pitchers suspicious about Bryce Harper’s broken bat home run

Bryce Harper home run

Bryce Harper’s incredible home run against the New York Mets on Monday is apparently raising some questions around the league.

The Washington Nationals outfielder had perhaps the big fly of the MLB season so far when he homered off Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom in the first inning of the team’s eventual 8-6 victory … despite breaking his bat in half.

Veteran baseball writer Rob Neyer reported though that some unnamed Houston Astros pitchers were wondering about the baseballs after seeing video of Harper’s homer.

The defending champion Astros have, of course, been suspicious of the possibility of “juiced” baseballs ever since their fireworks show of a World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers last fall. We can definitely pinpoint one particular Astros pitcher who may have led the charge here as well.
