Bryce Harper is very, very good at baseball, and has begun a quest to make the sport fun again two things which should be more than enough to get you to like the Nationals slugger. If you still were on the fence on the reigning NL MVP he gave you another reason to be a fan over the weekend.

After getting walked a historic number of times on Sunday as Washington was swept by the Cubs at Wrigley Field, Harper decided to but the loss behind him by doing a good deed for the less fortunate after spotting a homeless woman outside the ballpark.

A security guard saw the slugger’s good deed and shared the whole story on Facebook.

So now we all now Bryce Harper is a great guy on top of everything else, although I am curious as to why he walks around with a giant jar filled with change.
