Bryce Harper spites Cubs fans by tossing ball out of Wrigley Field, gets flipped off for his trouble
Harper just keeps endearing himself to Philly fans
It's been Bryce Harper. The Phillies star is slashing .224/.360/.454, his five-game hitting streak has given way to two straight games without a hit, and Cubs fans jeered him in his series in Wrigley Field this week. Harper, however, likes the little things in baseball -- like snubbing Cubs fans who harass him.for
In the sixth inning of Tuesday's game, Harper caught a fly ball in right field. Instead of giving a fan in the front rows a souvenir, as is tradition, he instead launched the ball out of Wrigley Field, much to the annoyance of the Cubs faithful.
Being fair to Harper, for as much as Cubs fans -- who likely-- dished it out to him, you have to be able to take it too. The gentlemen flipping him off weren't getting a ball anyway.
Is this punishing the many for the actions of the few? Possibly. But at the end of the day, when you're playing in a visiting ballpark, you have to do something to shake things off and have some fun. In this case, those things involved tossing a ball out of Wrigley Field just because you can. That deserves some respect.
