Listen closely at the 1:05 mark for a soon-to-be classic Bryce Harper quote.  It’s no “That’s a clown question, bro,” but it’s brilliant nonetheless.

The Washington superstar found himself in Fairfax, Virginia this past Thursday at his own day camp for aspiring baseballers—the aptly named Bryce Harper Baseball ProCamp—for youngsters aged 6-14.  Harper interacted well with the kids in attendance, giving them hitting and fielding tips, making himself accessible for photo-ops and autographs, and generally helping everyone see how much fun baseball can be.

The Nats star also brought along a comically oversized check for $2,500, which he donated to the Greater Washington Urban League, which was a magnanimous gesture in it’s own right.

One piece of sage advice Harper had for the campers—that may have flown under the radar had there not been video of it—that he doled out during some hitting instruction seems to be one that he abides by every time he suits up for the Nationals, and when used correctly, can help these kids make it all the way to the big leagues…

“Be as sexy as you can.”

Sound advice from the young and sexy Harper, and words that I’m sure will be remembered by the all those in attendance at the day camp.
