WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Scroll through these photos capturing Bryce Harper’s first spring training home run in the Nationals 8-5 victory over the Astros in Viera, Fla. on Friday.

The photos come from amateur photographer Eric Bickel — known for his work as host of popular D.C. morning radio show ‘The Junkies’ – who delivers an unconventional frame-by-frame approach to an otherwise ordinary feat in baseball.

Harper’s monster bomb came off of left-handed Astros starter Brett Oberholtzer, in a six-run first inning for the Nats.

Watch step-by-step, as Harper eyes the baseball and unloads:

Harper’s been a hot ticket for photographers ever since this photo surfaced days ago.
