VIDEO: Bryce Harper Hits First Class AAA Home Run

Washington fans' long, national nightmare is over. Bryce Harper has finally homered at Class AAA Syracuse. The Nationals top prospect had the audacity to accumulate 60 at-bats this season with the Chiefs before finally notching his first home run, a fourth inning solo blast Saturday against the Buffalo Bisons.

Harper has experienced similar slow starts in his progression through the minor leagues. Entering Saturday's contest, the 2010 No. 1 pick was hitting .220 with four doubles, a triple, six walks and 13 strikeouts in 59 AB's with the Chiefs.

After the jump, check out the Nationals Natural absolutely crush a ball over the right field fence for AAA home run number one.
