50-Year Gap No Big Deal To Nats’ Johnson, Harper

Posted By Sports Talk Florida On October 5, 2012 @ 4:32 PM In MLB | No Comments

[1]WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Nationals center fielder Bryce Harper is 19 and looks and sounds the part, from his Mohawkish haircut to his tattoos and well-documented “clown question” ‘tude.

His manager, Davey Johnson, is 69 and looks and sounds the part, from his graying hair and leathery skin to the near-whisper speaking voice that delivers tales of chats with Ted Williams.

Yes, Johnson and Harper were born a half-century apart. One’s the oldest skipper in the majors. The other put together the best season by a teenage hitter since the 1960s. Able to meet somewhere in the middle, and united by a supreme sense of self-confidence, they figure to get plenty of attention when the NL East champion Nationals start postseason play Sunday.
