Major League Baseball and its so-called “Fan Cave dwellers” rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ Stock Exchange in Times Square Thursday morning, heralding the coming start of the baseball season. This meant the NASDAQ building needed to feature a baseball video on its massive outdoor video screen during Thursday’s rush hour. And this meant they turned to Bryce Harper.

As always, I believe the current trend is for Harper to be among the sport’s three or so most marketable faces by the end of the 2013 season.

The video in question was the IPlay spot that Sarah posted here earlier in the week.

If you want another brief Nationals-focused video, you can watch Gio Gonzalez dance a jig before a Spring Training start. Via @emgusk.
