PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Bryce Harper’s walk-off grand slam sent Phillies fans, the team and Harper himself into a frenzy. After sprinting around the bases, Harper was mobbed by his teammates, and he made sure he celebrated with the team’s new hitting coach, Charlie Manuel.
The 75-year-old Manuel was nearly taken to the ground by Harper who used a bear hug to celebrate with his coach.

Harper, on his own, has been on a tear. In his last six games, Harper has hit five home runs with 13 runs batted in.
