That's about three hundred feet folks...And make no mistake about it, Baseball Tonight had a better angle, he NAILED him. Had him out by a foot. Ump blew it. Just completely blew it. This should have been just another story in the legend of Bryce Harper, a story I'd tell years from now to my Grandkids, or just strangers kids on the playground because I'm old and have nothing better to do, only it'd be exaggerated...he'd have scaled the wall first and thrown it from approximately 440 feet. But nope. The Ump shit all over that dream.
Nonetheless, god damnit am I infatuated with this kid. Most exciting rookie since Ichrio, in fact, it wouldn't surprise me at all if hoards of Japanese baseball crazed fans were over there making goofy Hello-Kitty style fan videos dedicated to Harper. Kid's got cross-over appeal like you read about.
