Washington Nationals Phenom Bryce Harper Ejected From Game: Video

This blog is following the minor league career of Washington Phenom Bryce Harper as he travels up towards the big leagues.  Harper shined in his time at Class-A ball, but has had to adjust to a more difficult standard of play in Class-AA.

Looks like last night Harper's frustrations boiled over when he argued a called third strike from the umpire.  The video below shows Harper turning around and throwing his helmet to the ground after the call, earning an immediate ejection from the home-plate umpire.

Harper's been criticized before for his immaturity, but I consider it another step along the path for an 18-year-old millionaire who has been in the fishbowl since before he finished high school.  He has another year, most likely, before he hits the big leagues, and he would be wise to work on his temper but he's still just a kid.
