Bryce Harper keeps kissing his bats

The headline for this item says Bryce Harper keeps kissing his bats, but I’m not sure if that’s what he’s doing here. Maybe kissing. Maybe smelling. Maybe caressing. Maybe whispering.

But it’s much closer than I’ve ever gotten to a bat, in any case.

The above image comes from early in Saturday’s game, as Harper walked to the plate.

I noticed it because Reader @RyanJKelly had recently sent me another image of Harper doing something similar with a bat. Harper eventually tweeted out Ryan’s image, with a message.
