Tell ’em it was intentional and all the kids will be doing it in Little League. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was on the back end of a double steal during the first inning of Monday’s game against the Braves. As he slid head-first into second base, something dark was flapping around his mouth — his batting gloves.

Who knows if he did it on purpose, or perhaps he was caught off guard and had to run with his mouth full. Harper always keeps it interesting.
