Fans behind 'Bruce' Harper sign misspelled name intentionally

The fans behind the infamous “Bruce” Harper sign at a Washington Nationals game on Saturday say the misspelling was intentional and done as a joke. Fans Ryan Winnick and Kyle Banas are not even Nationals fans — one is a Phillies fan and the other a Yankees fan — so they thought it would be funny to make a big sign saying how far they had traveled for the game, only to have...

Rays minor leaguer rips Bryce Harper over ‘Make Baseball Fun Again’ hat

A Tampa Bay Rays minor league didn't think much of Bryce Harper's "Make Baseball Fun Again" hat. Harper, recall, sported the hat after Monday's Opening Day win over Atlanta, and it immediately caused a major stir on social media (see the hat here).
