Bryce Harper's first Arizona Fall League game is in the books, and while the 18-year-old phenom didn't change the face of the game, he did show a glimpse of his prodigious talent.
Harper went 1-for-4 in the Scottsdale Scorpions' 6-3 win over the Mesa Solar Sox, driving in a pair of runs on an opposite-field ground-rule double in the seventh inning. He also popped up to short in the second inning, hit a sharp lineout in the fourth inning and grounded out to short in the sixth.
Before the game, Harper was hitting batting practice homers that had people gushing on Twitter: ESPN's Keith Law tweeted this picture of a shot Harper hit to right center.
There were just 822 people in attendance, and there was no TV documentation of the debut. But Harper certainly got baseball people talking.
He'll play his second game on Saturday.
