Bryce Harper, the Philadelphia Phillies’ shiny new toy they hope to take pleasure in for the subsequent 13 years, wasted no time ingratiating himself to the hometown followers in the course of the season opener. The outfielder, sporting mascot-green spikes, bowed to his new supporters upon taking the sphere and threw in just a few fist-pumps for good measure.
He’s excited. The paying clients are excited. The jersey retailers are excited. Everybody’s excited.
Harper hit the ball exhausting throughout his first at-bat, however proper on the first baseman.
