Flyers fans have message for Bryce Harper at 2019 Stadium Series


Bryce Harper Mania is getting so out of control, folks in the Delaware Valley are already insinuating that Philadelphia is the slugger's home.

Really, Las Vegas is his home. Some would consider Washington, D.C. as his home, given he has played their all seven seasons of his big-league career.

But we can totally change his home to Philly. Why not?

Come home, Bryce.

A fan at Saturday night's Flyers-Penguins Stadium Series game at Lincoln Financial Field made that message loud and clear.

The 26-year-old is the megastar free agent general manager Matt Klentak and company are trying to land. Harper remains out there (yes, still) with spring training well underway and exhibition games being played.

The Harper buzz has spread everywhere and even Phillies players down in Clearwater, Florida, are joining the fun.

"I saw a helicopter circling over here the other day and we were joking, saying it would be funny if he just landed here and got out," Andrew McCutchen said Saturday, via NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury.

Beloved former Phillie Jimmy Rollins, who now works for the club as a special advisor, was at the Flyers-Penguins game and caught up with NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark about the Harper drama.

Harper is a hockey a fan.

If he was tuning into Saturday night's game, maybe he saw the message and will "come home."
