We noticed that Washington Nationals rookie outfielder Bryce Harper, when asked by a fan what he'd be doing if he wasn't playing baseball, responded that:
"I?d probably be a firefighter. Ever since I was growing up, I wanted to be a firefighter or a baseball player. Going into the offseason, I?m going to get my EMT and do the firefighting thing so I have something to fall back on."
Recognizing Mr. Harper's inner calling as something more than just a savvy PR move, the Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department invites Bryce Harper, and any other Nat who'd like to come to check out the fire service in the offseason.
We'll look forward to seeing you at our November meeting.
