Bryce Harper Hustles Too Much, Falls Down Trying To Run Out Grounder




    The Washington Nationals had quite the day running the bases Sunday in their 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, but before Adam LaRoche and Jayson Werth rewrote "Baserunning For Dummies," Bryce Harper was the butt of the joke.

    Gotta love Harper's hustle, but I love him falling just a little bit more on this play.

    First base isn't the only place that Harper is slipping; in August, Harper is 18-for-85 (.212) with three home runs and eight RBIs. His struggles at the plate apparently led to the teenager throwing a temper tantrum after being removed from Sunday's game.
