Bryce Harper Shows Great Immaturity in Admiring Single-A Home Run, Blowing Kiss to Pitcher

Bryce Harper was the No. 1 pick of the 2010 MLB draft. He's famous for his long bombs on YouTube and his ridiculous smearing of eye black.

Now a pro, the eye black has given way to a mustache, but it's obvious that the 18-year-old has some maturity issues he'll need to conquer going forward.

Harper, playing for Single-A Hagerstown, homered on Monday night. He slowly took seven steps, flicked his bat aside and admired his homer, and as he trotted from third to home, he blew a kiss toward the pitcher.

The kid, no doubt, will be great, but he needs to get a little less excited for his Single-A accomplishments. Pretty sure they don't read those at your Hall of Fame induction.

Congratulations on your home run, Bryce, but if you try this in the majors, against real competition, you may find seam marks on that fancy mustache of yours.
