Bryce Harper is not just defending his 2015 N.L. MVP award this season.
He is bound and determined to "Make baseball fun again."
The Nationals' star is the face of baseball, and following a hot start to the season, is inspiring other stars to do the same.
At first it was just a saying.
Now it's a full-fledged campaign, one being endorsed by the likes of Cincinnati Reds stars Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto.
Following a first-inning home run on Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers, Phillips and Votto celebrated with a jumping high five.
Celebrations in baseball are — to many — part of the archaic "unwritten rules." Votto and Phillips, like Harper, do not care.
