Bryce Harper's off-day activities: secret selfies with young fans at the Smithsonian

Bryce Harper is a national treasure, so it makes total sense for the Nationals star to head to the Smithsonian on Monday afternoon to have some fun -- and basically photobomb a young man proudly wearing a Harper shirsey.

Just some shenanigans on the off day at the @smithsonian Natural History museum! #DC

Residents of the D.C. area, consider yourself warned: it's totally feasible to catch Harper out and about on off-days during Nats homestands.

Harper's surprise selfie isn't unlike the one Tigers ace Justin Verlander snapped with a kid wearing HIS shirsey at a Starbucks back during Spring Training. Apparently this is a thing players like to do when the opportunity strikes.
