Bryce Harper Wins ROY, Happy To Be With Jackie Robinson And ... Mike Piazza

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, November 12, 2012

Here is an excerpt from the MLB award show interview with Bryce Harper.  Bryce said:

"Just being able to be in the names of Jackie Robinson & Mike Piazza and all the guys that won it, its an honor..."

Haha this picture makes me laugh.  It doesn't seem to make sense to me...

I find it funny that Mike Piazza comes up in Bryce's mind.  Not Willie Mays, not Frank Robinson, not Willie McCovey, not Pete Rose, not Johnny Bench.  Mike Piazza.

Is it safe to assume since Bryce was a catcher, Piazza may have been his favorite player growing up? Piazza won the NL ROY in 1993, when Harper was 1 years old.  But he was in his prime when Bryce was developing into a baseball player and catcher.

Catchers also won in 2008 (Geovany Soto) and 2010 (Buster Posey)
