We've seen him do it in batting practice, but that's just not the same. Not the same as the crack of a bat against another MLB team, and not the same as rounding the bases for the first time as a Phillie.
Bryce Harper stepped to the plate for his first at-bat on Thursday afternoon, and he absolutely rocked the first-pitch from Blue Jays pitcher Sam Gaviglio over the right field fence at Spectrum Field. The sound, folks ... it's as sweet as you dreamed. Watch it above.
Then, in the bottom of the sixth inning, Bryce cranked another one over that same right field fence. It may have landed on Highway 19.
We're not sure this one has landed yet.— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) March 21, 2019

The first two of many, many Harper home runs we'll be seeing over the next 13 years. Get used to that sound, Philly.
