Bryce Harper Blows Kiss To Pitcher


Washington Nationals prospect Bryce Harper blew a kiss to an opposing pitcher after hitting a homerun in the sixth inning of a minor league game Monday evening. It was a move that was sure to bring headlines as well as a lot of conversation.

It's a risky move to showboat in any aspect of any game. Being a former high school pitcher, I would have nailed him the next time he stepped into the batter's box to face me. There is a big difference between having fun and showing somebody up. It is a very good thing that Harper was in the minor leagues when this happened because he obviously has a lot to learn. Yes, he may be one of the most talented prospects ever, but that gives him even more reason to be humble and play the game with class.
