At the beginning of the 2019 MLB season, the Philadelphia Phillies added a new member to the baseball team. Bryce Harper joined the Phils as a player traded from the Washington Nationals. After receiving numerous offers, Bryce picked Philadelphia as his new team. Many fans were thrilled, making the Phillies’ Opening Day a full house full of cheers for the new season.

Even though the baseball star has only been with Philly for a couple of months, he has already earned his spot by helping the team in recent games. Many media sources emphasize that Harper is a new beginning of fame to the team.  As Scott Lauber of Philly.com wrote, “Harper has turned the baseball world’s attention back to Philadelphia for the first time in a long time.” Many Phillies fans are not only excited to welcome Bryce to the City of Brotherly Love, but they are happy with the prospect of a winning season with him on the roster.

Philly even celebrated with the new player and his wife after they announcing they were expecting a baby. Get yourself ready, Phillies fans, because the rest of the season will be full of success and home runs from Harper and the team. If you have a chance this season to go to a game or watch on television, make sure you cheer on Bryce and the rest of the boys!
