Throwback Thursday: The human highlight reel strikes again

Whenever Bryce Harper steps into the batter’s box or has a ball hit his way, people take notice. His huge home runs and diving grabs have made him a human highlight reel.

In the video below, the stage was set for another one of Harper’s highlights. It was the bottom of the ninth in Kansas City as the Nationals were trying to protect to an 11-10 lead. With a speedy runner on first and one out, Harper knew that a double would likely result in a run to tie the game, so Harper was playing deep in right field.

The ball was hit to shallow right. Harper sprinted, left his feet and, of course, made the amazing diving grab to save the game. While you wait for more spectacular plays from Harper in 2014, relive this thrilling highlight in the video below.
