Harper receives steady stream of boos in return to Nationals Park

April 3 2019 2:47 AM

Philadelphia Phillies recruit Bryce Harper was met with boos in his first game back at Nationals Park.

Fans began booing Harper when he was in the on-deck circle and a steady stream of loud boos continued through his at-bat.

Washington fans then cheered after every strike and the crowd erupted when he struck out.

The Nationals were quick with a response on social media as well. The team's account tweeted, "thank u, next" after the strikeout.

Harper, 26, penned a whopping 13-year, $330million deal with the Phillies in late February.

The 2015 National League MVP hit 34 home runs and a career-high 100 RBIs with the Nationals in 2018.

He spent his first seven seasons with the franchise.
