Young Phillies fan refuses to throw back Bryce Harper HR ball
The Washington Nationals were visiting Philadelphia on Sunday when Bryce Harper hit a first-inning, solo home run that ended up in the glove of a young Phillies fan.
Often fans will throw back the home run balls hit by opposing players as a show of hometown pride, but a Bryce Harper home run ball is a pretty cool thing to have on your mantle, so this lucky fan decided to ignore the fans imploring him to return the souvenir.
This child learned an important lesson early in life: never take advice from people yelling at a baseball game.
