Bryce Harper has been named Baseball America’s Major League Player of the Year in 2015.
This commercial is the best of the bunch featuring Washington, DC teams in my opinion. This is definitely better than the Alex Ovechkin/Semyan Varlamov SportsCenter commercial or the more recent Stephen Strasburg commercial.
Great read from Adam Kilgore at the Washington Post who’s one of the best beat writers in the baseball business. Adam writes how Bryce Harper had a blast at the 2013 Home Run Derby. Click this link to read it.
The Washington Nationals star turns 20 today. Here are his 22 home run dingers from this year. Thanks for a memorable season Bryce! (H/T Mr. Irrelevant)
Via the D.C. Sports Bog, from Tuesday’s Diamondbacks/Nationals game, Bryce Harper made an amazing throw home from deep left field on a sacrifice fly. As Dan Steinberg notes in an enlarged photo (see bottom of his post), Harper got his man and Jeff Nelson made a really bad call at home plate. Move over Jerry Meals, Jeff Nelson just took your spot.
Personally, I can’t wait to see what Bruce Harper does up in the big leagues.
