This is what the Vine App is made for – not to mention what Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper was made for.

Never one to shy away from contact, Harper rounds third, flies in and absolutely lays the wood on Miami Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis. The hit was so jarring it knocked the ball out of Mathis’ glove, and Harper was safe at home.
