Bryce Harper on Wednesday night took issue with Washington Nationals fans heckling him in the latter stages of the game and the Philadelphia Phillies star’s wife echoed his statements a day later.
Kayla Harper tweeted Thursday that Nationals fans were bringing their 1-month-old son into the trash-talking and that’s what upset her and her husband.

“When you bring his son or family into it, yes you’re crossing a line,” she tweeted. “Stick to your overused overrated and Harper sucks chants if you’re really that loser that goes to a game to heckle someone. Phillies fans might boo him but they don’t bring his 4 week old son into it. Classless”

“They were fine all game, talking about myself and things like that,” Harper told reporters. “I get it everywhere I go. That’s nothing new. But the last two innings, it’s just not right. It’s not right.”
He added that he was eager to get back to Philadelphia.
