Congratulations, Bryce Harper, NL Player of the Week from September 3 to September 9. In six games Harper had, among other things, two homers, two doubles, and TWELVE walks. His OBP was an incredible .655.
Your dad was right. A walk is as good as a hit.
And he told you that before anyone cared about OBP, OPS, or knew what the heck a “slash line” was.
