The Bryce Harper simulated game home run heard 'round the world


Bryce Harper's first home run as a Phillie!

Kind of.

Harper homered off Jerad Eickhoff in his third plate appearance of a simulated game Wednesday afternoon, following a walk and a swinging strikeout.

The homer came on an Eickhoff curveball, his best pitch, and left the stadium.

"It felt good, just getting out there and seeing pitches, seeing spin," Harper said. "Glad Eickhoff was out there. If he's healthy, we're going to be pretty damn good, he's going to be able to help our staff a lot."
