Bryce Harper Pinch Hits in D.C. Softball Game: Cool: Playing softball next to the Washington Monument. Cooler: Having Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper show up and join the game for an at bat.

That reminds me of the Simpsons episode "Homer at the Bat" where Ralph and Bart are choosing teams for a pick-up game of softball.

Bart chooses his friends (Milhouse, Lewis) but Ralph keeps picking the major league stars that walk by (Griffey Jr., Boggs).

I used to play summer softball on The Mall when I lived and worked in DC. Was a lot of fun.

I was playing softball across the street from there on the Ellipse last night. Unfortunately, we did not know this was going on at the time.
