50 Home Runs and 50 Stolen Bases in a major league season. It’s never been done before. Harrisburg Senators manager Tony Beasley believes Bryce Harper could eventually be the first to reach that elusive milestone. In a fantastic read by CBSSports.com national columnist Gregg Doyel, a must follow on twitter @GreggDoyelCBS, Doyel visits Akron, Ohio and sees what daily life is like for the Washington Nationals prospect, talks to Beasley in depth about Harper’s future, and recaps the ups and downs of Harper’s 2011 season.
On a night in which Bryce Harper stuck out twice against San Francisco Giants pitching prospect Eric Surkamp, it was the second of the two that was noteworthy. Harper took what looked to be ball four on a full count pitch, and headed to first. As he did so he was rung up by the home plate umpire Max Guyll. Harper slammed his helmet into the ground and was immediately ejected and then proceeded to give Guyll a piece of his mind. Harrisburg manager Tony Beasley was also ejected. Harper gets pretty intense following the ejection.
