Prayers go out to all my friends and family in Oklahoma! May god be with you in these horrible times! Love you all! Be safe! #PrayForOK

Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reminded us that Harper once played on a travel team in West Moore, Okla., mere miles from where the tornado hit.
On Wednesday Harper debuted his own personal tribute to tornado victims, writing “Pray 4 OK” on the brim of his game cap. The writing remained largely undetected during the game, but was visible during his postgame MASN interview.

I think Ian Desmond is saying it’s going to rain today.
Weather the storm and the rain will always bring sun. #grind.

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Ian Desmond, on hugging Bryce Harper after his catch at the wall last night:
“People on the outside don’t really understand the type of mental hurdle that is. You run into a wall, or you get caught stealing, whatever it may be, to bounce back from it is a huge mental hurdle. I just wanted him to know, ‘Hey, man, we appreciate you taking it.’ Because running into the wall full-speed does not ever feel good. For to put it on the line for us right there, in a huge part of the game, especially after what happened yesterday, that took some big guts.”
