Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton isn’t just breaking records.
He’s breaking cameras.
Stanton hit his major league-leading 53rd home run of the season—and 20th in his past 31 games—in the fifth inning of last night’s 7-2 loss to the Nationals.
But the thing is, moments after Stanton connected for an “H-R” on an elevated 96-mph fastball off Washington's A.J. Cole he connected with an “HD” camera in the right-field stands, denting it along the way.
The cameraman kept working with the damaged camera, and eventually the housing was taken off the apparatus for some repairs.
Meanwhile, Stanton's 53 home runs are the most by anyone since Baltimore's Chris Davis had 53 in 2013 and the most by a National League player since Ryan Howard had 58 in 2006.
Something tells me Howard’s number is about the get damaged as well.
