Dodger Stadium opened in Chavez Ravine in 1962.
And in its history, no visiting player had multiple extra-base hits and a homer in three consecutive games.
Until Bryce Harper did last weekend for the Phillies.
“Feels like he’s the best player in the world,” Trea Turner, Harper’s former teammate in Washington, told The Athletic.
“I watched him for years over there (in Washington). But since he’s been over in Philly the last few years, you feel like he has a bad year and then you look up at his numbers, and he’s got a .900 OPS and he’s hitting really well. And then years where he’s playing really well and he wins the MVP. It’s kind of crazy.
“The numbers he can put up offensively are really special. He’s one of a kind. That’s why he won the MVP last year and that’s why he’s doing what he’s doing now.”
