Bryce Harper receives personalized MVP crampons from youth squad
But some kids at the North Camden Pirates Youth Baseball Organization allowed Harper to focus on other things when they commemorated Harper’s 2021 National League MVP award by designing a custom pair of Under Armor Harper 6 cleats. The North Camden Pirates’ organization was robbed in 2019, putting their season in jeopardy. Harper surprised them with an Under Armor and Dick’s Sporting Goods shopping spree, including spikes and tickets to the Phillies.
“We really wanted to do something very special for Bryce to show him that we appreciate what he has done for us,” said Ryan Skinner, 12, of the North Camden Pirates. “He’s such an amazing baseball player and he truly deserved the MVP award.”
The kids designed the crampons. They include the Phanatic, of course. They also have “MV3” and “MVP” with a Phillies “P” on the back. They were delivered to Harper’s home in Las Vegas last week.
“It was a really good surprise and such a cool way to reconnect with the young athletes of North Camden,” said Harper. “This game can present both struggles and triumphs, which they all know too well. I will think of them every time I wear these cleats – they are a representation of their hard work.
“Being the kind of player these kids look up to really means the world to me. I really mean it when I say I play for them. The fact that they were thinking of me during that moment is really special.”
