A Day in the Life of a Phenom

Follow @Nationals on Twitter | Like the Nationals on Facebook

At 11:20pm on Tuesday night, right about the time most 19 year-olds were probably studying, watching television, or grabbing a late-night bite, Bryce Harper was rounding first base, his sinking liner to left field having fallen just fast enough to produce an historic, game-winning hit. Following a mobbing by his teammates and a Gatorade dousing by Michael Morse, he participated in the standard rounds of post-game interviews before turning in for the night.

There would be no rest for the weary, though, as Harper was due at Bonnie Brae Elementary in Fairfax at 11:00am to read to a group of third graders.

From there, it was off to the ballpark for an interview with Nationals radio man Dave Jageler.

Then, Harper headed into the traditional media and batting practice routine, and on to the next game of the series at 7:05 p.m. against the Mets where he was once again batting second in the lineup and playing center field. Sure enough, the first ball put into play by a visiting batter was David Wright’s bloop into shallow center. How did Harper do?

It’s all in a day’s work for the league’s youngest superstar.
