Bryce Harper is in this year’s ESPN The Body issue. He took some candid photos but that’s not what we’re focused on.
As ESPN reporter Stacey Pressman was interviewing him, Harper was going over his diet, his regime and other desires he wants for himself in terms of fitness. In a random statement, he said that an old coach told him to look sexy in the box and then he decided to mention Robinson Cano’s name. Here’s how it went down.
There’s nobody as sexy as [Robinson] Cano in the box. I had a coach, Chris Sheff, who always told me to be as sexy as you can in the box. And, I mean, if you look at Cano … that guy has one of the smoothest, best swings I’ve ever seen. Manny Ramirez is the same way. It’s a lot of fun to watch. So, when I get into the box, I just try to be as smooth as I can.
Looking sexy in the box may attract some new baseball fans but this is an intriguing concept made by Harper’s old coach.
