Video: Bryce Harper crushes balls at Citizens Bank Park
The MLB season would be nearing the All-Star break around this time during a normal season, but this year has been anything but that. Spring training was stopped and the MLB season postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s been a while since fans have seen anything that resembled baseball players doing their thing, but we got a glimpse of it on Wednesday.
MLB Network aired some video live from Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia of Bryce Harper crushing some balls during batting practice.

Just seeing guys in baseball gear working out a stadium is comforting.
Players agreed to report to their teams’ respective cities by Wednesday to prepare for the shortened 2020 season, which will be 60 regular season games.
Harper is entering his second season with the Phillies. He batted .260/.372/.510 with 35 home runs in 157 games last season.
