Bryce Harper (30, Philadelphia Phillies)’s fierce reaction cheered local fans.
Harper participated in a game against the Colorado Rockies held at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA on the 14th (hereafter local time).
The incident occurred at the end of the 7th inning. At that time, Jake Bird (Colorado) went down the mound after handling Bryson Stadt (Philadelphia) with a fly ball. He knocked on his glove on the way and yelled something at the Philadelphia side. When some Philadelphia players, including Kyle Schwaber, responded, a war of nerves continued, with Byrd sticking out his tongue.
It was Harper who couldn’t stand it. He ran towards Bird, blushing. Immediately after, both teams came to the ground, and the referee sent off Harper and Byrd.먹튀검증
In an interview after the game, Harper said, “Emotions ran high. I understand doing that for one inning. But once you talk about a team or a team different from yourself, then I see a problem.”
“Didn’t you see my reaction? I felt very bad. I just did what I had to do and ran to the opponent’s dugout.”
How did fans react to Harper’s comments? Among Philadelphia fans, “a player who really cares about the team”, “the reason why he is the MVP”, “he acted ahead. Harper is the true leader of Dougout,” and others praised him.
However, there are voices of criticism among Colorado fans. Some fans said, “Sometimes my heart goes wild on the mound. It was an important moment. Emotions were a bit intense, but the other person didn’t understand that. Citing Bird’s remarks, “It was unusual,” he argued, “Isn’t Harper reacting too sensitively?”
It is not yet known what Bird said during the match. The match ended with a 4-0 victory for Colorado.
