Bryce Harper quotes Domingo Ayala to riff on mammoth homer (pic)


Even Bryce Harper was left utterly impressed with the vulgar display of power he demonstrated with a majestic mammoth home run that reached the third deck of Nationals Park during Wednesday’s 8-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. So much so, in fact, that he riffed on a quote from social media star, YouTube sensation and baseball quasi-folk hero Domingo Ayala to properly address the round-tripper on social media.

The Washington Nationals slugger took to Twitter to marvel at his own mashing majesty.

Harper links to an Instagram post in the tweet that features an image of him admiring the towering homer, his 20th of the season, that traveled a whopping 451 feet, making it his longest home run so far this season.

While Harper has hit a rough patch of late after a torrid start to the season, he seems to be rediscovering his swing. And here’s a stat that should serve as a sobering thought for other MLB teams.

Now “this is how you impress the scouts.” Domingo Ayala would be proud.
