On Tuesday night, Bryce Harper did something that not many Big League players have done in their careers, let alone before the age of 25 -- he managed to homer in every National League ballpark.
With his two-run smash at PNC Park to help lead the Nats to an 8-4 victory, Harper checked off NL park No. 15 (it's actually No. 16 if you count his first blast at Turner Field). Harper already has four All-Star appearances, a Rookie of the Year Award and an NL MVP Award under his belt, and now he gets to add this prolific feat to his young, impressive career. And boy, does he crush baseballs … even John Wall loves it.

Finally, almost five years to the day, Harper touches them all in Pittsburgh to end his tour of National League mashing.
Given more time, Harper might add the American League to his collection. But for now, he will have to settle for only seven AL parks, including all of the AL East.
