Bryce Harper Late For Team Workout; But Brings Written Excuse from Mommy

Harping on Harper. The kid claims he’s trying to do the right thing.

MIAMI (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Washington Nationals second year sensation Bryce Harper is still feeling his way through the rough and tumble world of Major League Baseball. Yesterday in Miami he missed the team bus to Marlins Park and was late for workouts.

“I told Skip (manager Davey Johnson) I was real sorry and stuff.” said Harper. “I had overslept and was eating my Lucky Charms® and watching Huckleberry Hound® when I heard the bus pull away. Fortunately my mom emailed me a written excuse which I printed out and brought with me. At first I thought I’d get fined and junk, but I think they’re gonna let me go with a warning this time. Still, they’re gonna make do the wash when we get back to DC to host the Cardinals next Monday.”

A five tool player, the young Harper spends his off time doing his arithmetic homework.
