Bryce Harper hits second grand slam in six days (Video)


Bryce Harper is making a habit out of hitting grand slam home runs for the Washington Nationals.

It was only six days ago that reigning National League MVP Bryce Harper hit his first career grand slam. Turns out the Washington Nationals outfielder loved it so much that he didn’t want to wait too long for his second grand salami.

Harper launched the 2-1 pitch and into the right-center power alley to give the 23-year-old slugger his seventh home run of the season and his second career grand slam.

The Miami Marlins are going to see Harper to his home run trot often this season and for the foreseeable future. Harper is chasing Colorado Rockies rookie phenom Trevor Story for the home run lead, but something tells me Harper will be able to lap the impressive rookie and leave him in his dust by the end of the year.

It’s crazy to think of the great young talent in MLB with MVP players like Harper and Mike Trout to second-year studs like Carlos Correa with the Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant. Baseball is in a good place and the future for the game looks bright with so many young start like Harper.

It also helps that Harper likes to speak his mind and is a bit of a lightning rod for criticism. Then again, aren’t most elite players?

Just wait until Harper is a free agent and signs a 10-year contract worth half of a billion dollars with the New York Yankees.
