Bryce Harper led the Phillies in a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' for Rhys Hoskins and Jean Segura
In most years, St. Patrick's Day would probably have just been another day for the Phillies in Spring Training. This year, though, it coincided with the birthdays of two of their most exciting players -- budding star
... and flashy new shortstop Jean Segura, who turned 29.
This was an occasion to celebrate, so just before the start of their game against the Yankees, another new Phillie -- Bryce Harper -- led everyone in a team-wide rendition of "Happy Birthday."
Not exactly the most pitch-perfect version, but it doesn't have to be pretty to be meaningful.
Happy birthday, Rhys and Jean!
