Bryce Harper is heading to the Hall of Fame. It may not be in Cooperstown, but it's a pretty unique honor.
Harper will join the Harrisburg Senators Hall of Fame this season along with former Expos greats Vladimir Guerrero and Cliff Floyd. The trio will be honored with life-size bobbleheads. That means Harper's will be 6-foot-3.
Replica bobbleheads will be given away and they will be hard to get. They are only handing out 1,500 of them to the first fans who show up.
Guerrero is expected to attend his giveaway on April 16. Floyd's is on July 9 and Harper's is on August 13. The Nationals play the Braves that night in Washington, so it doesn't sound like Harper will be able to make his special night.
The official name for Harrisburg's promotion is the The One & Only World Famous, Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame, by the way. Harrisburg is the Nationals' Double-A affiliate.

It's that wonderful time of year again — when baseball teams flock to warmer climates for spring training and the regular season is practically around the corner — and Bryce Harper is already killing it.
It took the Washington Nationals a few games to brush away their offseason cobwebs and get back into gear, but since the beginning of March, they're riding a five-game win streak as of Sunday the 4th.
They are 6-4-1 in spring training going into Monday's matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Since Thursday, the Nats have taken down — in order — the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, defending World Series champion Houston Astros, the Detroit Tigers and the Mets again. Sunday's 6-2 win against the Tigers was in large part thanks to Harper's bat, as the star of the team drilled his first home run of spring training.

Turn up the volume for this one because the sound of Harper's contact with the ball is just beautiful — and perhaps enough to get you pumped for the March 29 opener.
Harper blew this ball away in the bottom of the third for a two-run homer with Howie Kendrick on base. He also had a single in the fourth and finished the game with three RBI.
Gio Gonzalez was the winning pitcher for the Nats.

We are fortunate enough to live in a world where we can watch a former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback (attempt to) hit against a three-time Cy Young pitcher in a Major League Baseball preseason game.
Max Scherzer took less than a minute to strike out Tim Tebow, who was batting cleanup for the Mets in a spring training game Friday. You can watch the whole at-bat here:
It looks like Tebow and Scherzer are starting to develop a pattern - last year’s matchup between the two went down the exact same way.
Tebow was able to redeem himself later in the game with his first hit of the year against Nats prospect Erick Fedde. He will likely begin the season with the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies, but Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he believes Tebow will eventually see some at-bats in the Majors.
