Harper Is Hockey Tough AND A Class Act, Too!


Class act!

Posted by Dan Cirucci on Friday, April 30, 2021
The Phillie's Bryce Harper was hit in the face by a 97 mph pitch in a recent game. 
Harper not only took the wallop and walked off the field with little or no assistance but he also reached out via text to the pitcher who hit him, exonerated the pitcher and offering to talk about it -- no hard feelings. Harper also posted an Instagram video (tap on the second photo above) assuring fans that he was OK and tests showed everything was fine. 
It was a scray moment, but Harper handled it with aplomb, like the classy pro he is -- something that seems all too rare in major league sports today. Indeed, the folks at MLB could learn a thing or two from Harper -- a young man with character and smrats and dignity.
