Bryce Harper and his son have a heartwarming moment at the Florida State Fair
Imagine being born to an MLB superstar in their prime. That’s life for Bryce Harper’s two children, born in August 2019 and November 2020, when he was already signed to his historic deal with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Since Harper is not allowed to take part in official Spring Training activities until the lockout ends, he’s able to spend more time with his family, which is one of the only good things to come from this work stoppage.
Over the weekend, the Harpers took their kids to the Florida State Fair, and ended up finding his jersey hanging up at a booth that offered what looks like a baseball-centric game. Harper’s wife Kay documented the father-son moment on her Instagram Stories.
For Harper, family is paramount. After Krew was born in August 2019, the first-time father crushed a home run in his first game back.
Then, on his son’s first birthday in August 2020, Harper crushed the second-longest homer of his career, a mammoth 470-footer with an insane 109.6 mph exit velocity.
Last year, during Spring Training, Harper showed off the toddler’s killer swing. Like his father, who made his big-league debut at only 19 years of age, Krew Harper seems to be excelling beyond his years. Maybe one day, he’ll join his father in the Phillies lineup.
