One Nats fan pointed out on Tuesday that Bryce Harper appears to enjoy using the baseballing equipment of his teammates.
Just in the past week, he appeared to be sporting the 4th of July batting gloves of Ryan Zimmerman, which read “Zim 11″ near the wrists.
And then the Saturday afternoon batting gloves of Ian Desmond, No. 20 in your programs.
And then the Monday evening bat of Chad Tracy in Philadelphia. Perhaps foreshadowing Tracy’s 9th-inning at-bat with the game on the line. Although Tracy didn’t produce, so I don’t know what foreshadowing this would have been.
