Washington Nationals Send Ozzie Guillen Autographed Bryce Harper Bat
In the aftermath of the heated pine-tar war between Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen and Washington Nationals rookie outfielder Bryce Harper, the team presented him with an autograph baseball bat.
The teenage phenom however had no knowledge of the exchange presented Guillen. Nationals Adam LaRoche and his teammates pulled a prank on their All-Star outfielder.
LaRoche later added “To my hero, Ozzie, love you” and his teammates smeared it in pine tar.
“It was funny,” Guillen said in Chicago before playing the Chicago Cubs. “I’ve got a few friends on their side. All those guys were making fun of me. I found out later they made the kid sign the bat. They put the rest.”
