Harper commercial debuts on ESPN

BALTIMORE -- Bryce Harper's commercial on ESPN made it its debut on Thursday. The commercial also features ESPN anchors John Anderson, Hannah Storm and Bram Weinstein.

Harper and Storm are seen crying while watching the movie "Field of Dreams," and then Harper says that it's time to call his father. Harper said he enjoyed filming the commercial, which was shot during the offseason.

"It's fun to do things like that during the offseason," Harper said at Camden Yards. "Stras [Stephen Strasburg] did one also. It's fun to be a part of. I was lucky enough that ESPN asked me to do something. It's going to be part of the Sports Center commercial."
