Bryce Harper reunites lost 7-year-old with his family, announces mayoral campaign
Once again, Bryce Harper has found a way to make this city love him even more. Usually, it’s about his love of Philly or his exceptional play on the field, but this speaks to what kind of guy he is.
During batting practice on Saturday, Phillies players took time to sign autographs and meet fans in attendance who showed up early to support the team.
One fan, a 7-year old named Caleb, had a front row spot to watch Harper and company, but was separated from his family, which caused the young Phillies fan to get upset.
Bryce Harper comforted a lost kid and helped reunite him with his brothers during batting practice on Saturday:
What a great guy. Just chilling with this kid until they find his family when he could’ve been doing anything else. It really made for the perfect moment to announce his mayoral campaign.
Okay, so he’s not running for mayor, but he absolutely should. If we’re being totally honest with each other, Harper did more for the Philadelphia population in that one moment than Jim Kenney has done over in two full terms.
Plus, he did it in style. That’s got to count for something.
In all seriousness, the way Bryce Harper has embraced the city of Philadelphia is unmatched. I’d put him up there with Jalen Hurts and Jason Kelces as the athletes that “get” Philly the most.
Even so, he’s the best panderer out of anyone in town, and we just can’t get enough of it.
