I managed to get my hands on a much-coveted ticket to today’s game where Bryce Harper will Make his Phillies debut. It’s a sell-out!
I got in as soon as the gates opened and managed to get to see Harper take 2 at bats before heading into the locker room.
Afterwards they lead him out through the Hooters Diamond Dugout to avoid the crowd.
He did come to sign for those of us standing there…I didn’t ask since I got one Thursday..but I did say to him, “Hey, Bryce thanks for the autograph on Thursday, I really appreciate it!” He stopped, looked to see who said that, met my eyes and said, “you’re welcome, glad to.”
He’s defiantly not “who they said he is”. He’s thoughtful and appreciative to his fans. So much better than I could have expected.
