We Should Just Expect a Strong Start From Bryce Harper Every Year
There are only three things guaranteed in life: death, taxes and Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper having a huge April.
That’s how the saying goes, right? It’s something like that.
Every ballplayer is wired differently, and that’s usually apparent when looking at how they perform. Some are notorious for getting off to a slow start, while others immediately put the pedal to the floor. Harper has only been in the big leagues since debuting as a 19-year-old in 2012, but he’s already built a reputation on being a fast starter.
Whether it’s his propensity for hitting homers on Opening Day or producing some of the most dominant April performances this decade, it seems like he’s always a top performer in the season’s first month of play.
And that’s pretty much what the statistics say. In fact, there’s no better month of the year for Harper than April.
