Happy Birthday Bryce Harper!!
Bryce Harper turns 22 years old today.
Coming off of a power-filled playoff series, Bryce Harper showed us against the Giants just how dangerous he can be with his bat.
And launching 450-ft home runs out of ballparks, is just one of his many talents. Harper is a super-athlete that can disturb a team in many ways. A clean line drive hitter with dynamite speed and an aggressive attitude, Harper can be the fuel for the Nationals offense for many years to come.
He is one of the most energetic and exciting young stars in the game and as his full arsenal of baseball skills continues to grow and take shape, I believe that #34 will be the kind of player that draws visiting team fans out to the ballpark.
I am hoping for a breakout season for Harper in 2015. And I am also hoping that Matt Williams puts him in one spot in the batting order, like #2, and leaves him there so he can become more comfortable and confident with his role on the team.
Happy Birthday Bryce!
