Sunday’s newspaper will feature an article by Adam Kilgore that chronicles Nationals rookie sensation Bryce Harper’s day-to-day life in the D.C. area. The story also reveals that the 19-year-old considers Washington “home” and wants to spend his entire career with the Nationals.
“You look at Cal Ripken. You look at Derek Jeter. You look at all the greats that played for one team their whole career,” Harper said last weekend, sitting in the dugout at Camden Yards in Baltimore. “I want to be like that. I’ve always wanted to be like that. I’ve always wanted to play with that same team.”
