PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Now this is a sight, and a sound, that everyone in Philadelphia wants to see from the Phillies’ $330 million man – perhaps about 40 or so times this season. Bryce Harper has his first Bryce Bombs as a Phillie, and they were beauties.
While most of the United States was watching the NCAA Tournament, Harper was busy slugging dingers for the Phillies. That’s right, not one, but two home runs.
Harper made Blue Jays pitcher Sam Gaviglio his first victim in his very first at-bat during the Phillies’ spring training game against Toronto on Thursday.
That baseball landed in the right-field bullpen at Spectrum Field.
The next one literally left the stadium.
Harper victimized Thomas Pannone on his second home run.
Before Thursday, Harper was just 1-for-10 with five hits. Now, he’ll leave Thursday’s game with two home runs.
Philadelphia can get used to this.
