So ladies and gentlemen, meet your new face of baseball. Old people apparently don’t like him because he’s fun and old people, I’ve learned, don’t like fun in sports. BRYCE HARPER. Sorry Mike Trout. Giancarlo, you had a shot too, but it’s Harper, and at this point in time I don’t think it’s really a question.
Chill had rushed through my spine and throughout my body. I had got out onto the field feeling good. I felt like this was going to be a good game. Our starting pitcher had gotten two strikeouts to start the game. Then, the next batter had hit a homerun.
Utley was ruled safe at second base, which upon further review, was immediately noted to be against MLB rules. MLB Chief Baseball Officer, Joe Torre, said that “after thoroughly reviewing that play from all conceivable angles, I have concluded that Mr. Utley’s action warrants discipline.
