On Independence Day 2015, Washington Nationals' star slugger Bryce Harper stepped up to the plate in the nation's capital against defending World Series champs, the San Francisco Giants.
And he was armed with a bat decorated in red, white and blue.
As Harper's done 24 other times this season, he took a big swing and crushed the ball over the right field wall.
The feat placed the 22-year-old in rare company:

The Nats prevailed 9-3.
