Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg film ‘SportsCenter’ commercials

Regardless of what happened in the NL East standings last season, the Nats continue to have two of baseball’s most recognizable young stars.

For the latest evidence, consider this: both Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg were in Bristol late last week, filming ‘This is SportsCenter’ commercials for ESPN.

Details are scarce — and trust me, I asked — but the two young stars apparently filmed two separate spots. Harper’s is with Hannah Storm and a couple other ESPN anchors; I’m not exactly sure who was in Strasburg’s spot.

Regardless, Strasburg and Harper will join Alex Ovechkin, Lindsay Czarniak and Testudo on the list of “D.C. athletes with This Is SportsCenter” commercials.

Storm helpfully tweeted an image from the Harper shoot.
