GIF: Teenage Bryce Harper Homers onto a Mountain

Harper HR

The freely available video from which this GIF has been captured — and which appears to feature the College of Southern Nevada at Western Nevada College in 2010 — offers more or less everything a person could want so far as Bryce Harper and mountains are concerned. Like, Bryce Harper singling to left in front of a mountain, for example. And also Bryce Harper making an extra-inning relief appearance in front of a mountain.

What said video also offers is the footage above — of teenage Bryce Harper not only homering in front of, but also mostly onto, the mountain in question.

Surely, one realizes, Walt Whitman was right when he said… all those things that Walt Whitman is famous for saying about one thing and another.

Whitman clearly must have been witnessing a compact yet oh, so powerful stroke very much like the one demonstrated above when he purposefully wrote, “Limitless limpid jets of love hot and enormous,” knowing full well that one day Annie Savoy would recite the line out loud to Nuke LaLoosh whilst he was roped to a bed in his Jockey underwear. We have come full circle.

You buried the lede, Carson. That’s a video of Bryce Harper pitching! Clearly, this is the way to make sure he doesn’t run into walls anymore.

In order to play against stiffer competition and further prepare himself for the Majors, Bryce Harper became a teenager after his 9th birthday.
