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… — Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 18, 2013 Harper continues, addressing how any of the proceeds from the sale of the jersey better have gone to charity or some worthy cause and not lining the pockets of the Nationals or MLB: I hope all the money goes to charity and not something wrong! Charities need it way more! #Jersey twitter.com/Bharper3407/st… — Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 18, 2013 Much to Harper’s relief I am sure, D.C. Sports Bog reports that the MLB auction does in fact indicate that all proceeds do go to charity. Nevertheless, Harper is without a keepsake from his memorable game. A person might ask: Will he get over it? Of course he will. That’s a clown question. Bro.
