A day later, Jayson Werth's mammoth home run – the one that flew clear out of Space Coast Stadium and may or may not have hit his large, white pick-up truck – remained the talk of Nationals' spring training. Davey Johnson again called it the hardest ball Werth has hit as a National. The effort to determine if Werth really did hit his own truck raged on.

"It just left a hole in the Earth where my truck used to be," Werth said. Then Werth relented and said the ball, according to a parking lot attendant, had actually hit the bumper.
