Bryce Harper Puckers Up to Pitcher

Bryce Harper Puckers Up to Pitcher

Without a doubt, Bryce Harper is talented. But what happened on Monday night was a disgrace and the act of a douchebag. If he wants to be like Barry Bonds, hated by almost everyone, he is off to a good start.

In the 6th inning of the game Monday, Harper hits a home run to right field. A nice home run, but not worth the celebration that ensued. He started by admiring his home run with a long pause at the plate. This act in itself is not a good one. Act like you’ve been there before.

This, and rightfully so, upset pitcher Zachary Neal of Greensboro. So as Harper rounds the bases, Neal let’s him know of his displeasure for showing up the pitcher. And what is Harper’s reaction? It’s that of a twelve year-old. As he heads for home, Harper puckers up and makes a kissing motion at Neal.

In my book, this would earn Harper a few bruises in ensuing at-bats and some teammates as well. There has to be a message sent that this sort of behavior is not acceptable, and it could come from his own team as well.

You are a professional athlete Harper. Act like one! There are a lot of people, even non Nationals fans, who are anxious to see what you can do at the Major League level. But if this is an indication of how you will act in the future, you will have a lot more haters than supporters. It’s time to grow up and realize that your actions speak louder than your words. So act like you belong.

By the way, Harper and the Suns lost the game 3-2.

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
