Default Bryce Harper Game Used - Bible Bat

I picked up a 2010 CU26 Marucci Bryce Harper bat a few days ago. As a collector, Bryce is a great prospect, but I thought the inscription on the bat was kind of unique. If you read the link below you'll read this thread and some people think it's a bit over the top.

I have no problem with someone putting a verse on their bat. It's no different then a player wearing a religious symbol or making gestures to God.

That is a great looking bat. Bryce is being introduced by the Nationals today and hope I get as lucky as I did when Stephen Strasburg got introduced as I got to meet him.

Today I got field passes for all of BP and set that up a couple of weeks ago so I could see Mark McGwire so the Bryce Harper is a bonus as I am sure he will be on the field pre-game.

If you ever think of selling the bat, let me know as that would be great in my Nationals collection.

Thanks!

While I am about as far away from religious as you can get......

Luke 1:37 "For everything is possible with God"

Not exactly offensive.

I'd actually have been less offended if he'd written "LOOK AT ME" on the bat in neon green. Look, I'm thrilled that Harper has a close, personal relationship with his imaginary sky god. Thrilled, I tell ya. I just wonder how many would be as thrilled if the gibberish on the end of his bat came from the Koran.

It's a beautiful bat and it really doesn't matter what he believes in...but from what has been reported this kid in college acted like an arrogant punk on the field. He will clean it up once he grows up, but still.

I heard the same thing. When you watch people give him interviews he really does seem arrogant. He is a great player, but still. Once he gets to the majors he will not be the best on the field, at least in the near future

If it were a verse from the quran i doubt anybody would have a problem with it. Liberals in this country only have a problem with religion as long as it it christianity. I could care less either way. In any case it is truly a unique bat, and a cool item to have in your collection.
