Bryce Harper Has Pitching Experience



    We all know Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper as an outfielder, a home run hitter, a witty conversationalist and a connoisseur of pop music.

    But did you also know that he was a pitcher?

    Check the video:


    Back in 2010, while Harper was still playing at the College of Southern Nevada and a gleam of hope for all 30 MLB teams, he actually pitched in relief against Western Nevada College (after hitting a home run earlier in the game, no less).

    Harper actually struck somebody out, but gave up a triple and a walk-off single in the ninth as Southern Nevada lost 5-4.

    Just something for the Nationals to keep in their back pocket.

    Eat your heart out, Rick Ankiel.
