At just 21, Bryce Harper is one of the most well-known names in the baseball world. Loyal Nationals fans have come to expect hard-nosed play, extreme amounts of hustle and intense ferocity from the slugger.
On the field, Harper has stood out and made himself into one of the most well-known players of this century.
In Major League Baseball’s latest “For the Love of Baseball” spot, Harper has been edited into old baseball footage, so it appears as if he’s playing on the field alongside greats such as Babe Ruth, Carlton Fisk and Ted Williams.
The video is edited beautifully. Look closely, or Harper may just look like another legend on the field.
Once his career is over, will Harper end up being viewed in the same light as the baseball heroes seen above? Only time will tell. But for now, we’ll enjoy watching his hard-nosed play, which has made him so famous, night in and night out.
In another Harper commercial released this week, his image was also edited ... into Gatorade. Much different.
