It appears Bryce Harper might be forced to miss some upcoming Washington Nationals games. D.C.-area native Katie Ledecky is here to soften the blow.
“If you end up suspended,” Ledecky tweeted to Harper after his mound-charging fight Monday, “come on down to Palo Alto and hang out at the pool for a day!”
It would be fitting. After all, Ledecky already joined Harper at Nationals Park in August, when Harper become a medal rack for Ledecky so she could throw a ceremonial first pitch.
Harper then sported a Ledecky swimming cap during the Nationals’ champagne-spraying celebration after winning the National League East title last season.
Ledecky, a rising Stanford sophomore, is preparing for the U.S. Championships in Indianapolis in four weeks. She will race in Santa Clara, Calif., this weekend on NBCSN, NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app.
