Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper hosted a youth baseball clinic Thursday, and he offered the players an unusual tip at one point.

"Be as sexy as you can."

(See the video here.)

It's probably not what the kids are used to hearing from their coaches, but Harper is known for his unusual phrases. (That's a clown question, bro.)

The 19-year-old outfielder donated $2,500 to the local Little League. He also may have helped the Nationals' scouts out. "A kid over there, I can't remember his name, but he's an absolute stud," Harper said. "I told him he was gonna be a big leaguer and he just looked at me like I was crazy. He's 11 years old, and he's unbelievable. He's got a great swing."
