Bryce Harper launches first career leadoff HR into upper deck

Nationals slugger Bryce Harper did something that he’s never done in his career —  in a big way.

Harper has been drawing a lot of walks recently, so he was given the opportunity to hit leadoff during Wednesday’s game against the Pirates.

It worked.

Harper worked a 2-2 count and then got a hanging breaking ball from Ivan Nova, which he slugged all the way into the upper deck of Nats Park.

It was Harper’s first career leadoff home run.
