Bryce Harper Needs to Grow Up

Bryce Harper’s latest display of immaturity is a major concern in my opinion. This is just the latest display of immaturity and my colleague here at Bleacher Report, Shaun McPartlin, lists his top 10 such displays.
So far Harper has backed up his immaturity on the field with superb play. However, if he continues to do things like that, it will end up causing major issues eventually. If he blows a kiss to a Major League pitcher, it may start a brawl right then and there and will definitely result in either Harper getting drilled by a pitch later in the game or the next batter to get drilled instead; and that will start a brawl and result in numerous suspensions.
It’s one thing to flip the bat like David Ortiz did in last night’s game against the New York Yankees, it’s another to directly target the pitcher with a display like that.
