Found April 19, 2013 on Sportress of Blogitude:
Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper had a brilliant game against the Miami Marlins on April 1 to open up his 2013 regular season campaign. He tore the cover off the ball, going 2-4, with the two hits both being home runs, jump-starting a season that by all appearances will be a phenomenal one for the second-year outfielder. The jersey that Harper was wearing that particular game, apparently unbeknownst to him, was recently sold through the auction arm of MLB.com. And Harper is none too pleased about how a prized memento was just taken away from him and sold for… Over 13,000 smackeroos? Wow. That’s a lot of Chipotle burritos. Not that Harper needs the money for those. Harper took to Twitter on Thursday to express his dismay over the pilfering of his game-worn jersey by the Nationals and/or Major League Baseball. Via @Bharper3407: They just take my jersey away from me and don’t ask if I want it or anything! First opening day! Jersey gone! #MLB twitter.com/Bharper3407/st… — Bry...
