After being drafted first overall selection in the 2010 MLB draft and spending the first seven years of his MLB career in Washington, Bryce Harper appeared at Nationals Park for the first time in a visiting team’s jersey.
Harper failed to come to terms with the Nationals after two reported offers, and ultimately signed with the Philadelphia Phillies for a 13-year $330 million contract at the end of February.
Harper was greeted by boos during a pregame video tribute. Harper was booed as he was introduced to the crowd before his first at bat. Harper struck out against Nationals ace Max Scherzer. The crowd cheered! Harper was then booed as he ran out to right field.
Basically, it’s been a big giant boo fest.
