Bryce Harper celebrates Nationals’ NL East title in Katie Ledecky swim cap

Sunday September 25th, 2016

In a nod to hometown hero Katie Ledecky, who shattered the women’s 800-meter freestyle world record at this year’s Olympic Games, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper rocked her swim cap as he celebrated the team’s NL East title on Saturday night.

Ledecky apparently sent Harper an authentic cap, or perhaps left one behind when she threw out the first pitch in August, and the slugger decided to wear it to protect his luscious hair from champagne and Budweiser.

Ledecky chimed in upon seeing the video:

This is the third divison title in five years for the Nationals.
