In a game where manager Matt Williams benched Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper for a "lack of hustle" against the St. Louis Cardinals, fans in the crowd Saturday received this ironic program.

Kevin Frandsen replaced Harper after the outfielder slowly jogged up the first-base line on a ball he hit back to the pitcher. Frandsen would later ground out with two runners in scoring position in the ninth inning, driving in a run, but Washington lost 4-3 when the next batter struck out.
