Harper batting ninth in NL All-Star lineup

You know what’s weird?

Seeing Bryce Harper’s name in the No. 9 spot in a batting order, that’s what’s weird.

Harper will hit ninth for the National League All-Star team, which makes me wonder whether Harper has ever, in his life, hit ninth before.

It probably ensures that Harper will only get on at-bat in the Midsummer Classic. Harper will play center field.

Here’s the National League starting lineup:

2B Brandon Phillips
RF Carlos Beltran
1B Joey Votto
3B David Wright
LF Carlos Gonzalez
C Yadier Molina
SS Troy Tulowitzki
DH Michael Cuddyer
CF Bryce Harper
RHP Matt Harvey
