Bryce Harper’s Advice To Little Leaguers: “Be As Sexy As You Can” (Video)
Washington Nationals rookie sensation Bryce Harper may have all the tools you need to be a baseball superstar, but he could use a little advice on how to talk to kids.
On Thursday the 19-year-old outfielder held a free baseball clinic for kids in the greater Washington D.C. area. And he didn’t just treat the event like a photo op by simply showing up, saying a few words, and then leaving. Harper was a real class act, sticking around for a while to interact with the kids and give them some pro tips.
Unfortunately, some of Harper’s tips weren’t really tailored for his young audience, because at one point the cameras caught him handing out this pearl of wisdom to one lucky ballplayer: “be as sexy as you can.”
Check out the segment that WJLA, the local ABC affiliate, did on the event. Harper’s advice comes at the 1:05 mark.
Come on, Bryce. That’s clown advice, bro.
Can you imagine the conversation these kids had with their parents at the dinner table that night?
Mom: “So, you got to meet Bryce Harper today! What advice did he give you?”
10-year-old Susie: “He told me to be as sexy as I can?”
Mom: “He said what?”
10-year-old Susie: “What does sexy mean?”
So while I salute Harper for giving back and spending time with the kiddos, he should probably learn what is and is not appropriate to say to children.
