Bryce Harper Hits 18th Homer, Next Up Tony Conigliaro

DC Sports Nexus ---- Saturday, September 8, 2012

On Saturday afternoon in DC, Bryce Harper crushed his 18th homerun of the season, a right field upper deck blast.  The homerun ties him with Mel Ott on the teenager homerun list.  Harper already passed Mantle & Griffey earlier in the season.  The only one left to pass is Tony Conigliaro, who hit 24 as a teenager.  He did that in 1964.

Harper doesn't turn 20 til mid-October, so he will have the remainder of the season, less than a month, to try to catch Conigliaro.  Although, this isn't really that important of a record and he probably isn't "trying" to catch him.  But if he keeps crushing the ball and seeing the baseball, he may end up doing it anyway.

Here is the video of his 18th:
