Harper says his jersey being auctioned is not as advertised
MIAMI (AP) An auction house says it is offering the jersey Bryce Harper wore during his memorable dugout fight with a teammate. He says they've got the wrong shirt.
Harper said Saturday he still has the jersey in question.
The website Lelands.com says it's taking bids for the jersey the reigning NL MVP wore during his fight last September with closer Jonathan Papelbon, who drew a four-game suspension for grabbing Harper by the throat.
As of Saturday evening the website said there had been six bids, with a top offer of about $4,800.
Harper said he had nothing to do with the auction, and doesn't know who's behind it or how Leland's obtained one of his jerseys. Leland, based in Bohemia, New York, didn't return calls from the AP seeking comment.
