Potomac Nationals Begin Preparing Their Bryce Harper Marketing Gimmicks

Despite his massive ambition, Bryce Harper will probably not be in the Major Leagues next season. Instead, his best chance to rise faster than many anticipate will be if he can reach Single-A Potomac, the high A minor league affiliate of the Nationals. Harper will begin the year with Hagerstown, the low-A team, but Potomac remains a pretty distinct possibility for him.

To prepare for that, Potomac officials are already preparing to deal with marketing Harper. General manager Josh Olerud told InsideNova.com that they have already lined up promotions for Harper, including a series of autograph sessions. But don't worry, he says they'll let Harper play baseball too.

No, no, he only has to sign autographs for three hours a day. Come on, that's nothing!
