Glad to see he’s still around. Here are 5 surprising places Bryce Harper has been spotted around Philly since the Phillies season ended. Bryce lives in Las Vegas in the off-season. That’s where he grew up and has his main home. Normally as soon as the season is over, he’s on his private jet back to Las Vegas. Last year was definitely a little different because he got Tommy John surgery for his elbow as soon as the season ended. This year, he was feeling great, and hitting amazingly, until the games where he went cold. Okay okay, we aren’t going to dwell on that.

Bryce and his family reportedly live in South Jersey and he’s been doing the rounds of being a good Philadelphian by showing up at a bunch of different places and has taken quite a few pictures. One could look at it as if he’s staying around, showing up, shaking hands, and kissing babies as a way to make up for not winning, or maybe he really is having a good time just hanging out being a regular dad.

Bryce already has said numerous times he loves it in Philly. That he’s not pandering. He truly loves being here, loves the fans, and wants a parade down Broad Street. WE DO TOO BRYCE! WE DO TOO! There have been reports that he wants to extend his contract with the Phillies, which is interesting since he signed a 13-year deal in 2019. If he signs an extension, he’ll be like 45. But if Tom Brady did it, why can’t Bryce Harper?

I do wish Bryce did more around Philly for those in need. I think it’s interesting he doesn’t have his own foundations, hasn’t visited kids at CHOP or St Chris’, and hasn’t done a turkey drop or anything for underprivileged kids. Chase Utley did so much for the SPCA, and what Carson Wentz did with his food truck, and what Joel Embiid and Jalen Hurts continue to do is amazing. Hopefully, Bryce will follow suit soon.
