Harper cherishes possible last Nats home game
10:32 PM ET
WASHINGTON — If Bryce Harper‘s tenure at Nationals Park is in fact over, it couldn’t have ended in a weirder way.
With dark clouds looming overhead in what might have been his last home game as a member of the Washington Nationals, Harper was on deck when the seventh inning ended. But the heavens opened up before the eighth inning started and the game never resumed.
“I definitely don’t like the rain now,” Harper said following his team’s abbreviated 9-3 win over the Miami Marlins.
He was dressed in street clothes, a stark contrast to his pregame attire. Three-and-a-half hours before first pitch, Harper was the only one in full uniform.
“It’s definitely crazy walking in today and knowing this could be my last game at Nats Park in my white jersey,” Harper said prior to the game. “It’s definitely something that you’re not sure how you’re going to react, and not sure what it’s going to be like, if that’s after the game, or even before. I knew I wanted to get here and put the uni on right away and just cherish that moment, if it’s going to be the last time or not.”
