Bryce Harper is already awesome. And yesterday he used his day off to hang out with kids, teach baseball, and benefit the Greater Washington Urban League, which is even more awesome.
Even more awesome than that? He coined a new Harper catchphrase, telling the kids to “be as sexy as you can!” Go to the one minute mark here for that gold:
How can you not love this guy?
You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.
The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.
Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
