Bryce Harper Takes Time Away from Hitting Home Runs to Unveil New Logo

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterApril 12, 2013

Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals star and person who does awful things to innocent baseballs, unveiled a new Under Armour logo. 

I mean, do you have your own logo?

Hardball Talk spotted the following tweet from the slugger that features swag most athletes can only dream of having: their very own logo. 

Let's get the nasty out of the way first.

I have to agree with Hardball Talk's Craig Calcaterra: This is no Michael Jordan Jumpman logo and will hardly become an iconic image known the world over.

With that being said, I have to stand back and marvel at what is a perfectly fine first attempt for a player who is quickly becoming one of the best in baseball. 

Now comes the time where we fawn over the accomplishments of a man who never met a baseball he didn't like. At least, that's what it seems like the way he has been hitting lately. 

Through nine games, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year is hitting .417 with four home runs and a marvelous 1.225 OPS.

While it would be absurd to think he keeps up this pace, any level close to this production will have Harper in the discussion for MVP this season. 

Even Paul Konerko, who got a chance to watch Harper up close in the Nationals' recent series with the White Sox, was beyond impressed, via Washington Post

To do what he’s doing, to be that far advanced, he’s just way ahead of the game. And you combine that with the talent. He can run. He can do it all.

Now you Nationals fans can hope to wear some fashion of the BH/34 logo, which I assume will be available from Under Armour shortly.

Thankfully, that will mandate retiring the "Clown Question, Bro" shirt you have been trying to keep relevant for the past few months. 


Hit me up on Twitter, and we can fawn over Harper together.
