MLB.com's Kathy Anderson catches up with players when they visit Rogers Centre, located underneath the CN Tower in Toronto. The latest victim: Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.
Anderson: Welcome to Toronto, is this your first time here?
Harper: Thank you. Yes, it is.
Are Canadians as polite as we're made out to be?
I haven't really noticed. No, you guys are great. It's fun to come up here and play, it's a different atmosphere.
Have you ever had poutine?
Exactly, that means you haven't. It's french fries with gravy and cheese curd. You should try and get one, it's the definition of heaven.
(Laughs) OK, I will.
Has your bench coach (former Blue Jay) Randy Knorr pointed out that you were born the day before the '92 World Series began?
No, I had no idea.
OK, let's get serious. Do you play as yourself in MLB: The Show?
I do not. I have a system, but I don't own the game.
Really? Everyone would want to play as themselves if they were Bryce Harper. You should invest in a copy. Which pitcher are you most scared to face?
I try to go up there and not really worry about who I'm facing that day. Just try to find a pitch that I can drive.
If you had to choose ...
Um, Nolan Ryan.
You're in the clear, then. Lastly, see the top of the CN Tower? You can walk around that. It's called the EdgeWalk. Would you do it?
Yes, I probably would because I like heights. But not now -- not during the season.
Well, Will Middlebrooks said that he'd do it, so next time we're all here at the same time, the three of us will?
OK, We'll do it. (Laughs) Like All-Star Game 2020.
