Sounds legit to me. Adam Kilgore via the Washington Post:
About three weeks ago, Harper talked to teammate Ryan Zimmerman about playing in the same city for the duration of his career. Zimmerman, who grew up in Virginia, signed a contract extension this offseason that ensures he will stay in Washington through at least 2019. Harper told him he wanted the same thing in his career.
“You look at Cal Ripken. You look at Derek Jeter. You look at all the greats that played for one team their whole career,” Harper said last weekend, sitting in the dugout at Camden Yards in Baltimore. “I want to be like that. I’ve always wanted to be like that. I’ve always wanted to play with that same team.”
As a baseball fan, this is just good news.
We also learn where Harper lives (in a top-story apartment in Pentagon City), where he eats breakfast (Ted’s Bulletin and Barracks Row), as well as his affinity for writing.
Really good in depth story, and great news for the city of Washington in regards...
