Harper's first game today.Too bad it's in crappy Scottsdale that doesn't have Pitch F/X. I'd love to see how the other team pitches him.
As expected, first overall pick Bryce Harper will make his debut at the Arizona Fall League tonight. He will bat seventh and play right field for the Scottsdale Scorpions at Scottsdale Stadium. His first at-bat will most likely come against Mesa Solar Sox starter Josh Zeid, a right-handed Philadelphia Phillies prospect who spent his season in Class A Lakewood.
1 pitch pop out to SS for Harper.
3 pitch lineout in his second at-bat. Swung and missed at the first two pitches.
Kilgore says he crushed the pitch but hit it right to the CF
Sounds like he's definitely over matched in the AFL.
Keep in mind that he's playing against some other Wednesday-Saturday only players as well. Still, it was nice to see that he could hold his own against the pitching here, I was sort of half-expecting him to strike out in all four at-bats.
Looks like Harper isn't overmatched and is hitting the ball hard in the AFL. MLB.com article http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20101021&content_id=15761054&vkey=news_mlb&c_id=mlb
