Bryce Harper Compliments Atlanta Braves Fans After Verbal Altercation

Atlanta Braves fans simply don't like Bryce Harper. It's a fact. Since his over the top reaction after getting beaten by Julio Teheran and later saying he could have put Teheran "six feet under" on Aug. 6, the Braves have hit him twice more. Still, that didn't stop Harper from having a verbal altercation with a fan at Turner Field after striking out for the last out of the Braves' 2-1 win Sunday.


With the multiple boos Harper received and cheers on the two occasions he was hit by a pitch, he said after Sunday's game to reporters that he "loves" Braves fans, and all accounts are that he was sincere.


Harper even went on to say he'd enjoy playing in front of a crowd like the Braves draw.


It's not immediately clear if Harper has ulterior motives such as trying to not be booed anymore, but he's pretty well cemented his place as a crybaby in Braves fans' eyes.
